The CSM training session and workshop promises to be like no other you have ever attended. Prior students in various sessions have gone as far as to say this class is life changing.

While this class is based on the Scrum Method within the Agile Framework, the teachings are not bound or limited to theory. We dig deep in class and help people solve pressing problems and issues they are facing.

If your only goal for taking the class is to pass the test, or receive a certificate, this class is not for you. While our CSM class average test score sits near the very top of all trainers, this is not our primary goal.

You will leave with new tools to help you perform your job better.

This class will point out real world examples of how well known organizations from startup to enterprise have adopted Scrum and witnessed dramatic incremental changes. This is not a back of the room type training and does require active participation from each attendee with lots of interactive exercises.

Certification & Exam

There are no eligibility criteria set for the ScrumMaster certification. Any professional looking to further his career in management can attend the course and attempt the test.

However, each participant is expected to have some basic knowledge of Agile/Scrum. We recommend reading the Official Scrum Guide prior to attending training.

Following are the steps involved in the certification process:

  • The first step towards CSM is to understand Scrum.
  • The second step is to attend a two-day CSM course conducted by a certified trainer.
  • Next, candidates need to pass the CSM online test conducted by Scrum Alliance.
  • To pass the test, a candidate needs to correctly answer at least 24 out of the 35 questions.
  • Once a candidate passes the exam, a license agreement needs to be accepted and the Scrum Alliance membership profile needs to be completed.

The certification cost is included in the price of this course, hence you need not have to pay anything extra for the certification/examination.
