Certified Scrum Master Training


Certified Scrum Master Training (CSM)

The Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) course is a two-day, entry-level course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer®. The CSM course is designed to cover all the basics of Scrum so you can begin to fulfill the Scrum Master role.

A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.


  • «  By earning a Certified ScrumMaster® certification you:
  • «  Expand your career opportunities by staying relevant and marketable across all industry sectors adopting Agile practices.
  • «  Demonstrate to employers and peers your attainment of core Scrum knowledge.
  • «  Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the Certified ScrumMaster’s role from the best minds in Scrum.
  • «  Engage with a community of recognized Scrum experts who are committed to continuous improvement.

As a CSM, you will be able to fill the role of ScrumMaster or Scrum team member. Through the certification process, you will gain an understanding of the Scrum framework, including team roles, activities, and artifacts.

With your CSM certification, you will also have access to a 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance. Through this membership you can join local user groups, online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on gatherings, and additional member-only resources.
