Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)

For a list of our public CSM classes see here.

Scrum is an Agile management framework, for delivering value, reducing risk and driving continuous improvement. The framework is simple in its mechanic’s but can be difficult to apply as it requires a shift in team culture. Therefore in this course you will not only learn the mechanic’s, but you will apply Scrum as it was intended so that you have the best chance of being able to do Scrum in your organisation.
Upon course completion, students will be qualified and ready to pass the Scrum Alliance certification exam. This online exam is required to become a Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster.
