Receive your ScrumMaster Certification (CSM) from the most experienced Scrum trainer in the Midwest

October 25 – 26, 2017

“I felt lucky to attend a class from such a skilled, knowledgeable instructor.”

The ScrumMaster Certification is a 2-day course introducing the concepts of agile project leadership using the Scrum methodology. Successful participants will become Certified ScrumMasters, a first step in the journey towards this more adaptive form of project leadership.

Taking a CSM course and the corresponding evaluation designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to 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.
