Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Course Info

GoodAgile offers two CSM options: a Standard 2-day CSM, and an Enhanced 3-day CSM. Both provide a comprehensive introduction to Scrum theory and practices taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer, and both include the cost of the CSM exam.

Our Standard 2-day CSM is a great choice for people who want the industry standard CSM training and certification in the minimum time and cost. This is the standard CSM option worldwide, and it's taught by our trainers Ethan Huang, KE Siew, Narasimha Reddy, and Sekhar Burra.

Our Enhanced 3-day CSM is for people who want to go more in-depth in the practices, skills, and mindset of a great ScrumMaster. It's especially useful for people leading Agile adoptions, working in organizational leadership roles, or people who see Agile as a key part of their future career (but everyone is welcome to attend!). As a side benefit, our Enhanced 3-day CSM also provides enough PDU's for PMP's to appear for PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification.
