Every ScrumMaster® needs to have a solid working knowledge of the fundamentals of Scrum - and the Certified ScrumMaster® or CSM® class is designed with precisely that objective in mind.
The CSM® is the world’s oldest and most widely recognised Certified Scrum Foundation course, and is suitable for anybody with a need or interest in understanding the Scrum Framework in detail.
Please find more information about the Certification process for the Certified ScrumMaster designation here. Upon completing this workshop Simon will put you forward for certification with the Scrum Alliance where you take an online assessment in your own time.

"I wanted to say thank you for organising the Scrum Master course last week. Everyone has come in this morning buzzing about the potentials of how productive it could make us, and with a real enthusiasm to try and change our practices for the better. Definitely a good course!!"
"Thanks for organising an enjoyable course and I have passed the exam as well. The course was very useful and we had a great time.Overall the whole experience completely exceeded our expectations, specially the penny game :-)"
"Just a quick note to thank you again for the CSM course. It was a very enjoyable two days, I found the mix of Simon’s teaching and the practical exercises really helpful in learning more about Scrum. Having such a knowledgeable and experienced tutor was great as it meant that we were able to cover learning points as they came up rather than having to rigidly follow a set agenda. I’m looking forward to evangelising Scrum back at work and encouraging my colleagues to learn more and attend courses like this. Thanks, also for setting me up on the Scrum Alliance website. I’m pleased to say that I logged in this morning and passed the assessment with a 100% score. I definitely want to gain the experience needed to enable me to apply for the CSP certification."
"The course was absolutely brilliant. I'm always trying to promote being Agile and think loads of people would benefit from your Scrum course. I'll definitely promote you guys when I'm in the sorts of positions where I believe we can all have a positive effect."
