A Certified ScrumMaster® acts as a "servant leader" to help the rest of the Scrum Team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions. Through the certification process, you will gain an understanding of the Agile mindset and the Scrum framework, including team roles, activities, and artifacts.
Benefits of a Certified ScrumMaster® certification
Expand your career opportunities across all industry sectors adopting Agile practices
Demonstrate your attainment of core Scrum knowledge
Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the role
Engage with Scrum practitioners committed to continuous improvement
In additional to fulfilling the role of ScrumMaster®, your CSM certification gives you a two-year membership with Scrum Alliance®. Join local user groups and online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on Gatherings, and more.
The first step toward your CSM is to familiarize yourself with the Scrum framework.
Then, attend an in-person, two-day (16 hour) CSM course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®) where you’ll get a comprehensive overview of how to organize and support a Scrum Team. After the course, you’ll need to pass the CSM exam. After you pass the CSM exam and accept the License Agreement, complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile and enjoy the benefits of certification.
