Welcome to the most widely recognised Agile training programme. This has been offered in New Zealand by Equinox IT together with Certified Scrum Trainer® Rowan Bunning of Scrum WithStyle for over 11 years!
There are many imitators but this is the original Scrum certification course with accreditation from the most influential professional development body that was founded in 2001 – Scrum Alliance. With the largest network of professional Scrum practitioners in the world, it is the most established certification organisation in the Agile community.
Become a Certified ScrumMaster if you want to understand what good Scrum is and how you can play your part in the Scrum game effectively. Also to prepare you to take your first steps into the challenging but very rewarding role of ScrumMaster.
The CSM certification is a globally recognised accreditation established in 2003 by Scrum Alliance. It has since become the most popular and recognised Agile training offering worldwide.
After completing the required pre-reading, full attendance at the CSM training course is the second of three steps in gaining the CSM accreditation from the Scrum Alliance.
The final step to become a Certified Scrum Master is to successfully complete the CSM certification exam. For further information on Scrum framework or CSM exam, see the official CSM resource.
This Scrum Master course may qualify Project Management Professionals (PMPs) for 14 PDUs as approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Our Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course is an intensive deep dive into the world’s most popular Agile method: Scrum. It is an immersive learning experience emphasising hands-on participation through a mix of interactive seminars, group discussions, team activities, games and role-plays.
Although CSM is likely to be your first Scrum certification, we use highly immersive adult learning techniques such as visual modelling, simulations, role-plays and ‘Training from the Back of the Room’ activities to enable self-directed learning and enhanced retention.
This course is organised and run using Scrum as a management framework. This allows for feedback and flexibility as well as experiencing Scrum in action throughout the course.
Completing the CSM is your first step towards achieving Advanced Certified ScrumMasterTM (A-CSMTM) and then Certified Scrum Professional® – ScrumMaster (CSP®-SM).
Reviewing the learning objectives for the course is an excellent and in-depth way to find out what participants will be learning out during the course. Scrum Alliance define the learning objectives that learners are to work to in all Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) offerings. For CSM course, this includes both – learning Scrum Foundations and ScrumMaster specific values, principles and practical framework implementation details.
Our CSM is up-to-date with the latest learning objectives that were published by Scrum Alliance in early 2020, see below:
Software developers, testers, business analysts, team leaders, project managers, software architects, development managers, Project Management Professionals (PMPs) and PRINCE2 practitioners who are interested in learning about the Scrum framework and ways it can benefit projects, teams and organisations in general.
