Scrum is arguably the most popular Agile framework. It breaks down big complex projects into phases or stages called “sprints” which are managed one at a time. The Scrum Master plays an essential role in getting the best out of the Scrum framework and in inspiring the Scrum team to learn from their experiences, self-manage themselves, and continuously improve by reflecting on wins and losses.
The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Certification course highlights the importance of leadership in Scrum and Agile project management. With newly acquired Scrum education, you will be able to help out your team members by successfully leading Scrum teams and Scrum projects.

The examination takes place four days after the last day of the course. It lasts 45 minutes, from 7 pm to 7:45 pm. This examination also acts as a preparation for you to take the Scrum.org PSM™ I Examination, which is optional.
This examination is optional – only for you who wish to get PSM™ I Certification from the Scrum.org. Taking this exam is not included in the course fee and administration.
