Professional Scrum Master (PSM-1) Training
To be effective, Scrum Masters need to have a rock-solid understanding of the practices and values of Scrum. The Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) assessments allow people to validate and certify their understanding of those practices and values, and how they would respond to situations that challenge them.
What is a Professional Scrum Master
Professional Scrum Masters demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Scrum and their ability to apply it in real-world situations. The value of certification is intimately tied to the demonstration of knowledge needed to achieve it. By that measure, the PSM assessments are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum. And, we strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.
Become A Professional Scrum Master
It is not mandatory that you take a Scrum.org Professional Scrum training class to take one of our assessments, although it is highly recommended. We believe that certification is more than just a way to show that you attended a class and that is why Scrum.org Professional certifications are so highly regarded in the industry. Therefore, we make assessments available to anyone as a way for you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the role of Scrum Master in detail. Each Scrum.org training class includes a free attempt at the corresponding assessment.
Those that pass any of the three levels of PSM assessments will receive the corresponding industry recognized certification. Search the list of existing PSM holders here or see a breakdown on how many people hold certifications.
