Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®)

As a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), you’ll help the Scrum Team perform at their highest level. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions. Through the certification process, you will learn the Scrum framework and gain an understanding of team roles, events, artifacts and rules.

In addition to fulfilling the role of ScrumMaster, your CSM certification gives you a two-year membership with Scrum Alliance®. Join local user groups and online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on Gatherings, and more.


The first step toward your CSM is to familiarize yourself with the Scrum framework.

Then, attend an in-person, two-day (16 hour) CSM course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®) where you’ll get a comprehensive overview of how to organize and support a Scrum Team. After the course, you’ll need to pass the CSM exam. After you pass the CSM exam and accept the License Agreement, complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile and enjoy the benefits of certification.

Incorporating Agile principles and Scrum practices into your world of work takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement.
