I recently completed the A-CSM training with ScrumCenter Ltd, and the overall experience was top-notch! The extensive experience and exemplary coaching provided by Simon Roberts truly set this course apart. His unparalleled ability to build a team and facilitate has been a true eye-opener for me, revealing areas for improvement on my journey to excellence. I highly recommend ScrumCenter Ltd's entire portfolio of courses. As seasoned practitioners, they profoundly understand the current challenges organizations face in adopting and nurturing agility, extracting maximum business benefits from it. A truly outstanding experience!

I did the 3-day Scrum Master course with Simon Roberts; lots of interesting exercises and hypothetical situations considered. The certification test was quite easy after that.

We not only learnt the core of being a Scrum Master, but also additional techniques in the field of coaching and team facilitation that I found very useful. The trainer is very knowledgeable, adaptable and uses interactive training methods that are really effective.

I completed the Certified Scrum Master course accredited by Scrum Alliance delivered by an excellent trainer - Simon Roberts from ScrumCenter! It was 2 days of high-quality interactive instruction where Simon backed the theory with examples from his experience in the field. He also encouraged us (a very diverse group from 5 different countries) to share our experiences. Simon is a natural in setting delegates at ease from the start and getting us all to engage. I highly recommend Simon Roberts and ScrumCenter.

About the Certified Scrum Master Course

The Certified Scrum Master training course covers:

 

  • Lean, Agile and Scrum — clarifying your understanding of Scrum and its underpinnings.
  • Scrum patterns — going beyond the basics towards excellent Scrum.
  • Facilitating great retrospectives — how to help your team to find value in retrospectives.
  • The Scrum Master as team coach — what coaching is and why it is different from mentoring and consulting.
  • An introduction to powerful questions.
  • How the Scrum Master serves the development team.
  • How the Scrum Master supports the product owner.
  • Facilitating impediment removal.
  • The Scrum Master as an agent for change.

 

Upon completing the Certified ScrumMaster course and passing the online assessment, you will become a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM).

Participants of the Certified Scrum Master training course are typically Scrum Masters or others seeking to understand Scrum, including:

 

  • Beginners, new to Agile/Scrum.
  • Those currently working in software or non-software Agile/Scrum Teams.

With a CSM certificate earned through Scrum Alliance endorsed training, you will hold an invaluable certification in Scrum, which will boost your professional standing and prospects. Our CSM is equally suitable for beginners, those working in non-software Scrum and Agile roles, and managers and executives who interact with Scrum teams and want to learn the language and understand the framework.

The exam is multiple choice and taken online – there is no need or option to go to a test centre.

There are 50 questions and a 1 hour time limit. To pass, you need a score of 74% (37 or more out of 50 questions must be answered correctly).

If you don’t pass, you can retake without any charge. Further retakes cost $25.

Secondly, people like you who attended our live-online Certified ScrumMaster course found it highly valuable. Here are some quotes about our training:

Simon is an outstanding agile trainer and empathic agile coach. He has vast software development experience and is a fantastic story teller. Simon skilfully introduces agile concepts and practices and knows exactly how to bring his ideas across. What fascinates me about Simon is his ability to connect with people and get a detailed sense of their needs. He shares a wealth of experience, knowledge, techniques and approaches and sows seeds of insights and a deeper understanding of Agile and lean, that truly grow and transform the way one works and collaborates. Shortly said, if you really want to transform to agile, Simon is your man.” Anna

The agility with which the host adapted to our current situation (coronavirus) by setting up the online course was a really authentic example of how to (positively) react to change.” Henrik

Simon is like a deep lake of Agile knowledge and experience, and it was a pleasure to work with him.” Marcel

“Very insightful, filled with lots of experience and real-life situations” Dennis

Finally, after the course you can book a free follow up mentoring call with the trainer to help put your new learnings into practice!
