All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers that are approved by the Scrum Alliance. Taking a Certified ScrumMaster course, passing the CSM test – by Scrum Alliance, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster. The certification indicates that you have been introduced to Scrum framework and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.

The CSM certification is valid for two years.

  • Plan your workshop days to be distraction free as much as possible. Yes, we know it’s difficult for leaders. However, can we sharpen the axe and cut trees at the same time?
  • Think through the practical challenges you would like to address after the workshop. Write and bring them to the workshop.
  • During the workshop, first, focus on learning the ideas and techniques then the application will follow. Some ideas may be pretty radical for your organization to implement in it’s current state. Don’t worry. Learn about the idea first and then let’s discuss how you can benefit from it.
  • Have enough sleep.

Chill. There is no exam.

However, we do care and highly encourage that you identify your own action items and apply in practice what you’ve learned during the workshop.
