The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification is a global accreditation established in 2003 by Scrum Alliance. The course is delivered in person and live online with Rowan Bunning from our Australian partner Scrum WithStyle.
The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training course is an intensive deep dive into the world’s most popular Agile method: Scrum. CSM is an in-depth learning experience emphasising hands-on participation through interactive seminars, group discussions, team activities, games and role-plays. We use highly immersive adult learning techniques such as visual modelling, simulations, and ‘Training from the Back of the Room’ activities to enable self-directed learning and enhanced retention.
In this course you will experience the Scrum management framework in action allowing for feedback and flexibility.
The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training gives you an understanding of what good Scrum is and how to apply it effectively. The course prepares you for your pathway to become a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM).
After completing the required pre-reading and the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training course, you will be ready to continue on your journey by applying to the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) exam, administered by Scrum Alliance.

"I want to thank Rowan Bunning CST from Scrum WithStyle and the team at Equinox IT for the Certified ScrumMaster course. As I have never been in an online classroom environment, I was a little sceptical approaching the course but Rowan Bunning CST made it effortless for us. Really excited to complete the certification and looking forward to using the knowledge as I head into my new role. Great stuff guys!!!"
- Pramod Raveendran, Information Technology Service Delivery Manager at OSS Group Ltd
"Rowan Bunning is an excellent and experienced trainer, with years of real life experience in the development and Scrum processes. This was very apparent in the level of training that our CSM course group received at Scrum WithStyle.
Learning within different non work groups was a real eye opener as it gave me an insight into how other companies develop and work within the Scrum Agile framework. It was very different to how the company I work for has implemented the Agile framework.
Rowan was an expert at getting everyone in our training course engaged and collaborating in the learning process. It was a real facilitation success, and I could see everyone gained a better understanding of the course material."
- Paul Clarke, Senior Software Developer, Indue

Completing the CSM is yourfirst step towards achieving Advanced Certified ScrumMasterTM (A-CSMTM) and then Certified Scrum Professional® – ScrumMaster (CSP®-SM).
After beginning his Agile journey with eXtreme Programming in 2001, Rowan Bunning began practising as a Scrum Master in 2003 and was the first in Australia to become a Certified ScrumMaster at the beginning of 2005. He was subsequently mentored by the first Scrum Trainer in Europe.
In his first few years as a Scrum Master Rowan coached a high performing team with an executive as Product Owner, led an organisation-wide Agile adoption and was instrumental in recovering a multi-million pound project in Europe. Such experiences are only the start of the many illuminating stories that Rowan embeds into his CSM training.
Rowan is the first and only educator in Australasia approved to teach all courses through to Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) for Scrum Masters. This includes Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) and Certified Scrum Professional-ScrumMaster (CSP-SM). Starting your journey as a Scrum Master with Rowan means that you have the option to receive a smooth and coherent learning experience all the way through to the highest level offered for Scrum Masters.
