No need to wait. If you already have at least 12 months of work experience as a ScrumMaster (within the past five years), and your role-based work experience has been entered onto your Scrum Alliance dashboard, the work experience requirement for the certification has been met. This means that once you enroll in an A-CSM™ program and complete all coursework, you’ll be eligible to receive your certification. Also, if you have at least 24 months of experience working as a ScrumMaster (also within the past five years), you can progress directly from the A-CSM™ to CSP-SM™ without waiting a year.
