Become a Certified ScrumMaster® by the Scrum Alliance
The Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster® is a highly-interactive course that will teach you the skills you need to become a Certified Scrum Master. This course is suited for all levels of Scrum experience. A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams use Scrum effectively and perform at the highest level. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs help the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework, while protecting the team from both internal and external distractions.
This course will feature case studies, games and interactive exercises that will teach you how to accelerate your Scrum practice. Upon successful completion of this course, you will:
- Be prepared to pass the Certified ScrumMaster test (new and revised for 2019)
- Be qualified to lead teams in any environment or industry as a Scrum Master
- Have the opportunity to network with industry leaders and Agile professionals
- Have access to a 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance
- Have access to membership benefits to join local user groups, online social networks, and additional member-only resources.
- Be able to use a specially designed logo to highlight your newly-earned CSM credentials.
