CSM

Whether you're new to Scrum, or just looking for a refresher, our most popular Scrum class, Certified ScrumMaster (CSM), is a great way to enhance your Scrum skills either as an individual or part of an organization. We offer CSM classes across the United States, making it a great option for individuals and small teams to get training.

About the Certified ScrumMaster Class

Contrary to traditional adult education classes, you will find no "death by PowerPoint" or long lectures in our Certified ScrumMaster class! Instead, utilizing a variety of proven education and retention techniques, the class is an engaging and highly interactive workshop that promises to keep you on your toes for two full days. Our students are consistently surprised by both how fun and educational the class is.

ScrumMaster Exam and Certification

Our CSM class is sanctioned and supported by the Scrum Alliance, the original certifying body for ScrumMasters worldwide. Following successful completion of our class, you will be eligible to take the Scrum Alliance's Certified ScrumMaster exam to receive your certification. The exam is a non-proctored online test, which you can take at your convenience from any location you choose. 

 

All exam and certification fees are included with your class registration.
