Course Overview

As a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master, you will hold an invaluable and world-wide recognised qualification in Scrum that will boost your professional standing and prospects.  

It’s equally excellent for beginners, those working in non-software Scrum and Agile roles and for managers and executives who interact with Scrum teams and who want to learn the language and to understand the framework.   

Learning with a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST) guarantees that you don’t miss out on the key knowledge and skills used by the very best practitioners in Scrum. This is the best way to make sure projects are implemented effectively while  maximising your impact within a high performing Scrum team.

Learning Objectives

This course combines the theory and practice required to make sure you pass the CSM exam and are then able to apply what you’ve learned to real life scenarios when you’re back at work.

If you’re worried about not understanding the language, about being overlooked as your organisation pivots towards Scrum, or about simply being left behind, the contents of this course will put your mind at ease. 

If you are starting out in a working environment in which Scrum and Agile are simply expected to be part of your toolbox, this course will set you on the right path from the outset.

If you’re experienced in Scrum and are looking to gain your certification as a CSM before moving on to Advanced levels of qualification, this course makes sure you will be building on the best possible foundations.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Scrum Master?

A Scrum Master is a key role within the Scrum framework, which is a popular method for managing projects, especially in software development. Think of a Scrum Master as a coach and facilitator for a team that uses Scrum to work on projects. Their main job is to make sure the team follows the rules and practices of Scrum, works well together, and stays focused on the task at hand.

The Scrum Master does not manage the team in a traditional sense but helps remove any obstacles the team might face and ensures a smooth workflow. They also act as a bridge between the team and any outside factors that might affect the project. This includes protecting the team from interruptions during a project and helping them interact with other parts of the organization. The Scrum Master is crucial for ensuring that the Scrum team can work efficiently and effectively.
