Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM)

You’re a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), who’s been introduced to Scrum values, practices, and applications. The next step in your Agile journey is to achieve your Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) certification.

Through the A-CSM course, you'll learn to:

  • Facilitate better dialogue between the Product Owner, Team members, customers, stakeholders, and executives.
  • Respond confidently when encountering resistance to change, lack of engagement, low motivation, and unavailability of key people.
  • Increase engagement to encourage greater accountability, commitment, and buy-in.
  • Scale Scrum and Agile beyond a single team.
  • Distinguish yourself in the global marketplace. An A-CSM certification helps you stand out among the global Scrum community


Certification requirements:

  • Attend a certified educational offering, such as this one, to get techniques and skills that go beyond the basics and mechanics of Scrum, expanding into interaction, facilitation, coaching, and team dynamics.
  • Demonstrate at least one year of work experience specific to the role of ScrumMaster (within the past five years).
  •  Hold a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification with Scrum Alliance.
