In 2018, the Scrum Alliance revised its certification programs by creating two pathways of continuing education in Scrum and Agile.  The original Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) program based on educational credits was retired and replaced with two role-specific educational journeys based on work experience as a ScrumMaster or Product Owner.

For Certified ScrumMasters®, the next step is to obtain an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® (A-CSM) certification.  After that, the next step would be to obtain the Certified Scrum Professional – ScrumMaster® (CSP-SM) certification.

The self paced program has materials that take over 40 to 60 hours of reading, watching videos as well as conducting real life assignments with their team as part of this program. The learner also has to attend 4 Virtual Learner Calls. You can complete the course work at your pace.

In each of our programs, you will move through 12 to 15 modules, each of which consist of an on-line pre-recorded video, usually 10 to 15 minutes in length, followed by a quiz or exercise.  The quizzes and exercises have practical, real-world application, and your responses will be reviewed, and feedback given, by one of our instructors.  All of our instructors are Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainers® (CSTs.)

In addition to the modules, you will participate in at least 4 Coaching Circles, which is how you can stay connected with your instructors and fellow learners and peers.  The Virtual learner's Calls are online virtual meetings; you can participate via video chat or telephone.  They are one hour each.  There are at least 8 scheduled per month with a limit of 10 learners per session.  Under the Scrum Alliance requirements to obtain the certification, you must  participate in at least 4 to receive your certification, but you are welcome to participate in as many as you would like.

Absolutely!  The main idea behind our programs is to give you new skills, abilities and a peer network to accelerate your professional growth.  So, you can start either our A-CSM, A-CSPO, CSP-SM or CSP-PO programs even if you do not have the required work experience yet, but you cannot have your certification issued until you obtain the required length of work experience and have updated your work experience on your Scrum Alliance profile.  Why wait to level up on your talents?

As soon as you sign up, you will receive a confirmation with your invoice by email. We will then create an account with you in our online academy within one business day and you will receive an email from the instructor to start the program in our online academy.
