Those who aspire to earn a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®) certification are required to take an in-person, two-day (16 hour) CSM course with one of our certified trainers and/or coaches. Upon successfully completing the training, you will receive a certification account on our website where you will be able to access the online test.
Although we acknowledge that individuals may have prior experience with the Scrum framework or received training from a different Scrum-certifying body, the CSM test is not intended to be a substitute for formal training from Scrum Alliance®. Those who earn a Certified ScrumMaster designation demonstrate a clear understanding of the CSM Learning Objectives addressed in the in-person course.
Please note that all approved courses that lead to CSM certification are found on our Course Search page; they must be taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer®, Certified Team Coach®, and/or Certified Enterprise Coach®. If you found a CSM class through a third-party, please ensure it is listed on our Course Search page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure its validity toward Scrum Alliance's CSM certification.
