Certified Scrum Professional-ScrumMaster – Self Paced

Certified Scrum Professional-ScrumMaster – Self Paced

Employers aren’t even asking for the CSP-SM. So why should I…?

The Certified Scrum Professional – ScrumMaster course and certification are here for true Scrum Professionals. We’ll be honest with you, you’re right. Employers are not looking for this certification, yet.  But they will be, soon. Employers are already reeling from all of the changes in the certification landscape as far as Scrum goes. The A-CSM and CSP-SM are fairly new, and employers have finally figured out that the A-CSM badge on a candidate’s resume means that the candidate is excelling at what they do, they enjoy it, and are dedicated to being among the best.

The CSP-SM is here to distinguish the best of the best.  Attaining the CSP-SM means that Top-Tier Scrum Allianace members believe that you will be the next generation of Certified Coaches and Certified Trainers.  And, as members of that group, we at Wisecrum are here to welcome you into that group by training and coaching you to excellence.
