Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®)

Be an integral national and international ambassador of Scrum and the agile movement


At Scrum Alliance, we value the learner’s journey above all else, so we prioritize trainers who are able to meet learners wherever they are. It takes a special kind of person to pursue the CST certification. It’s a journey that is challenging – and life changing. Read on to hear from a few of our CSTs about their experiences.

  • Bruno Margueritat (France): "My long journey to become a CST was the most valuable and challenging journey of my career. It makes me grow, not only as a trainer, but also as a person."

  • Bob Jiang (China): "My CST journey is the most valuable thing I did in the last 7 years. I got feedback from different talented people, and stretched myself more and more. If you would like to go beyond your comfort zone, challenge yourself towards the CST."

  • Kamlesh Ravelani (India): "I can confidently say that my CST journey has been massively rewarding. Feedback I received at each step of this journey helped me expand my envelope, helped polish the rough edges as a trainer and allowed for increased self-awareness."
