Frequently asked questions
Education providers are those individuals specifically certified by Scrum Alliance to teach and train. Examples of Scrum Alliance-approved education providers include: Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®), Certified Team Coach, Certified Enterprise Coach, or Certified Scrum Alliance Trainer. If you are interested in teaching (becoming a certified education provider for our organization), you must first be credentialed by Scrum Alliance to offer education and/or certification courses.
A REA can only advertise those courses that their associated education providers are credentialed to teach and are authorized to market publicly. Only CSTs, for example, can publicly advertise for a Scrum Alliance CSM and CSPO course. This applies to the REA's website and the Scrum Alliance course listing.
If an existing REP meets the criteria to become a REA, they will be transferred over to the REA program. Any continuing education course instructors associated with a REP will be preapproved into the REA's authorized education provider list.
Once approved, REAs pay an annual fee of $5,000. Those fees cover the cost of oversight and website maintenance.
