Scrum is an agile methodology that can be applied to nearly any project. Though most commonly used in software development, its iterative approach and ability to quickly absorb change, makes the Scrum process ideal for projects with rapidly changing and high emergent requirements, enabling teams to deliver usable software consistently and periodically through a project lifecycle. The role of the ScrumMaster can be seen as pivotal and involves removing any impediments to progress, facilitating the process, and working with the product owner to make sure the product backlog is in good shape and ready for the next sprint. The ScrumMaster sees to it that his team lives by the values and practices of Scrum, and doing so ensures their high performance.
We are a Global Registered Education Provider (REP) of Scrum Alliance and our two-day Certified ScrumMaster training is delivered by Scrum Alliance Certified Trainers (CSTs) who will provide you with a deeper understanding of the three overarching areas of change under Scrum: Iterative Development, Self-Management, and Visibility required for greater project success as a ScrumMaster. You will also gain comprehensive understanding of the Scrum Methodology alongside reviewing the conduct expected of a ScrumMaster, which is critical to carrying out your role in the most efficient manner.
Your successful completion of our 2-day CSM course provided by our Certified Scrum Trainer makes you eligible for Scrum Alliance’s Online CSM Test.
After completing your CSM course, you will receive an email from Scrum Alliance that includes a link to create your login credentials. You will use those credentials to gain access to the Online CSM Test. Once the test is complete, you will be asked to accept a license agreement. You will then receive the official designation of Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) from Scrum Alliance, along with a two-year membership (with Scrum Alliance.)
If you are already a Scrum Alliance Member, the CSM Test will be available through a link from your dashboard. Once the test is complete, you will be asked to accept a license agreement and your CSM badge will appear on your profile.
The CSM Test fee is included in your course fee; however, if you fail the test a second time, you will need to pay a $25 exam fee to Scrum Alliance before taking the exam a third time. Scrum Alliance recommends that anyone who fails three times, must re-take the CSM course before attempting the exam a fourth time.
