Certified ScrumMaster Workshop

Our CSM Training prepares leaders, makers, and anyone in between to guide, sponsor, and participate in Agile/Scrum initiatives. At the end of the 2-day CSM class, participants will have gained knowledge of Agile product development and all of the elements of the Scrum framework and will have the knowledge necessary to take the certification exam from Scrum Alliance.

Earning your certification is a good step towards understanding Agile and becoming a change agent. Our Certified ScrumMaster class welcomes both beginners whose first day in class is their first day in Agile and veteran Agilists who are looking for ways to get better. Project managers, tech leaders, even people who are not involved in software development have all found value in our certified ScrumMaster workshop.

You can earn 16 SEU’s or PDU’s with this class. For more information on how to claim SEU’s or PDU’s, visit our FAQ page. We also offer a non-certification, onsite private class called Agile For Teams. Contact info@agilevelocity.com for more information.

  • Learn how to estimate and forecast product delivery schedules
  • Prepare to pass the CSM exam

Why Is CSM Training Beneficial?

Become a force of good

Part of the reason we love our job is that we truly believe Agile is the best way to handle creative projects. Taking the CSM workshop gives students a strong foundation of Agile and Scrum, and will allow them to lead their team as they embark on their Agile journey.

Upgrade your career

As Agile and Scrum become the way of life for organizations, having the certification can make resumes seem more appealing to new prospects and help participants become more valuable to their organizations.

Expand your horizons

Agile is going mainstream; it’s no longer confined to tech teams. Many departments, from marketing to operations to sales, have started to adopt Agile. Becoming a certified ScrumMaster may help those who wish to escape the tech bubble.

Sharpen your mindset

Reading a book can only take you so far; sometimes you need colleagues and certified experts to add to your Agile toolbox. Use the two days of class to immerse fully in the world of Agile and Scrum and to increase fluency.

Sorry no events to show 🙁

You have people that have similar experiences and instructors with real-life experiences. It is a well-constructed class--the exercises were really well done, enough breaks, a lot of humor. I think it’s absolutely the best thing I ever did.

Janna Clement

So you learn a little bit, you do an exercise, learn a little bit, do an exercise. It keeps you alert, awake, and interested. It’s a good thing to sign up for because it’s valuable; it’s not just something you attend.

James Moscariello

Both the instructors were very informative and kept everyone in tune and interactive all the time. Overall, they’re just a great company. I learned way more in training and way more equipped with the right tools to tell them how to properly use the methodology that no YouTube video could ever teach me.

Monica Gostkiewicz

Best part of the class is...'working on a team with other class members, personal experience of the trainers, setting us up for failure to force a learning experience'

James Baldwin

Loved the team building. Working together creating legoville was fun.

Benjamin Cross

My team had built the cars that were going to go through the city. And the team that built the roads built them with four blocks across and my team had cars that were six blocks across...and it was like, oh...Agile!
