There is only a 10% overlap of Learning Objectives between the two courses.
The CSM course learning objectives are focused on Agile and Scrum Fundamentals. This course prepares you to implement the roles, events and artifacts of the Scrum framework. The CSPO course learning objectives differ from the CSM in that they are less focused on the mechanics of the events themselves and place more emphasis on how to manage requirements backlogs, define product vision, manage release schedules and work with stakeholders to prioritize work. The CSPO course requires you to have a basic understanding of Scrum and Agile.
The cost of training includes workbook and supplies, breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages during training. The cost also covers your initial 2-year membership to the Scrum Alliance. For CSM courses, it includes the cost of the exam.
The CSPO class currently does not have an exam. This is subject to change as Scrum Alliance is working towards creating one. The CSM does have an exam. You will be given a practice exam during class, but you take the real exam on your own time. The exam is online and open-note. By the time you leave class, you should have an email from Scrum Alliance with directions for taking the exam.
The CSM exam has a passing score of 74%. There are 50 questions and examinees have 60 minutes to complete the test. According to Scrum Alliance, you will have two attempts within 90 calendar days after you receive your welcome email to pass the test at no cost. After two attempts and/or 90 calendar days, you will be charged $25 for each additional attempt.
Each morning breakfast service starts at 8:15 AM with a class start time at 8:30 AM. There is a morning break and a couple afternoon breaks. We also break 20-30 minutes for lunch around midday. Class ends by 5:00 PM each day.
Just yourself! We provide any and all materials needed. You will not need a laptop.
Casual. You will be getting up and moving around, so wear something comfortable. Also, the rooms are sometimes cold, so bring a sweater if you tend to get cold.
We will make every effort to accommodate most dietary restrictions, depending on the venue’s capabilities. Please make sure to make a note on your order to let us know ahead of time. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch if you do not want to eat what is provided.
In order to get certified, you need to be fully engaged and participate in class. With that being said, there is a morning break and a couple afternoon breaks. We also break 30 minutes for lunch around midday. We have two phone rooms available and wifi for video meetings. You are not able to miss more than an hour of class time in the two days, or you will not get certified.
No, you’ll receive a paper workbook with all slide information included.

We offer private training for groups of at least 10 people, please contact our sales department for more information. Sales@agilevelocity.com. Please note that private classes are responsible for sourcing an appropriate training room & catering. We are happy to assist with this process.
At Agile Velocity, we use a few different platforms for our virtual training workshops.
For audio/video connections, we utilize Zoom. Your pre-event email will provide you with the Zoom meeting ID. If you are not familiar with Zoom, please review Zoom’s Getting Started documentation.
For collaboration, we use either Mural or Miro. (Your pre-event email will let you know which one.) If you’d like to a quick overview of either of those tools, we’ve created getting started videos:
