Work experience is approved for advanced (A-CSM℠, A-CSPO℠) and CSP®-level (CSP®-SM, CSP®-PO) certification by entering it in the Work Experience section on your Dashboard. If your work experience hasn't been entered into your account, you will not fully earn your certification until this requirement is met.
When entering work experience on your profile, please ensure:
- You've completed the Scrum Experience section at the bottom of the Work Experience page
- All required fields (in red) are completed
- The work experience has been within the past five years. Work experience outside of the five-year window will not be calculated.
- Your selected scrum role aligns with the specific certification track that you're pursuing (i.e. you cannot use your product owner experience to apply for Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM)
Please note that it usually takes one day for work experience to be approved once it's fully and correctly submitted. After it has been accepted, you will receive a welcome email prompting you to accept your certification's license agreement if you've already met the course attendance requirement.
