All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
Who This Course is Designed For
If you work in an organization that creates any sort of product, then you are an ideal CSM candidate. While the course is primarily designed for people filling the role of ScumMaster, anyone who wants to help their organization be more successful is encouraged to attend.
