Updated by the Scrum Alliance Trainer Approval Community (TAC)
Certified Scrum Trainers (CSTs) play a vital role within the Scrum Alliance community. Stringent certification requirements are imposed on CSTs to make certain that only those who are fully qualified are entrusted to engage in this role on behalf of the Scrum Alliance. The following standards set the certification requirements that each CST must both meet and maintain.
Please note, the following standards are built for CSTs teaching CSM® courses. CSTs teaching CSPO® courses should replace CSM with CSPO where applicable to reflect CSPO foundational knowledge, possession of an active CSP®-PO, and creation and co-training of CSPO material.
**Additionally, note that all CST Candidate Prerequisites must be met in order to submit a CST application.
