Certification Program

Remove impediments, enable progress, apply Scrum values in your teams and help them perform at their optimal level.

Schedules Play Course Overview

Overview


A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

Prerequisite


There are no prerequisites for attending the course itself. A degree of course completion from our Certified Scrum Trainer makes you eligible for Scrum Alliance’s Online CSM Test.

Certification


To gain the CSM certification, candidates must:

  • Understand the concepts of Scrum
  • Attend a two-day CSM course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer
  • After completing your CSM course, you will receive an email from Scrum Alliance that includes a link to create your login credentials. You will use those credentials to gain access to the Online CSM Test.
  • Take the online CSM test

The Exam

  • Score a minimum of 24 correct answers out of 35 questions to pass the CSM test
  • On successfully passing the test, you will be asked to accept the License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile

You will then receive the official designation of Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) from Scrum Alliance, along with a two-year membership with Scrum Alliance.

If you are already a Scrum Alliance Member, the CSM Test will be available through a link from your dashboard. Once the test is complete, you will be asked to accept a license agreement and your CSM badge will appear on your profile.

The CSM Test fee is included in your course fee; however, if you fail the test a second time, you will need to pay a $25 exam fee to Scrum Alliance before taking the exam a third time. Scrum Alliance recommends that anyone who fails three times, must re-take the CSM course before attempting the exam a fourth time.
