Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training 


Get ready to gain your ScrumMaster certification

The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training is a two day course designed to engage and immerse you in the fundamental principles of Scrum. It offers a wide range of highly practical tactics, techniques and tips that work in the real world.

This course is led by fully qualified and certified expert trainers. It has been designed to be interactive and features a blend of activities, exercises, in-depth discussions and presentation segments to ensure that all learning styles are engaged.

Upon completion of this course, you will have all the knowledge required to sit the CSM exam* - the final step in gaining your ScrumMaster qualification.

What is the Certified ScrumMaster certification?

The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification is the most globally recognised ScrumMaster certification, governed by the peak industry body, the Scrum Alliance.

Home to the largest network of professional Scrum practitioners in the world, the Scrum Alliance applies the most stringent trainer certification process in the industry to ensure that you receive truly world-class Scrum training.

*Please note: The two day CSM training is a prerequisite to the CSM exam. The CSM exam is facilitated by the governing Scrum Alliance and can be completed online. The CSM exam fee is included in the CSM training course, provided it is taken within 90 days of the CSM training, and allows for two attempts at passing.
