Pre-requisites and Certification

To be registered for the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) certification with the Scrum Alliance, you need to already:

  1. hold the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) status
  2. have one year’s experience working as a Scrum Master.

The learning objectives are delivered over a mixture of student preparations, lectures and exercises. This course requires a minimum attendance of 16 hours. As long as the A-CSM prerequisites are met, full attendance and participation will result in registration as an Advanced Certified Scrum Master.

What tools do I need?

We will be using Zoom, MURAL and Google Docs for the online training. We require delegates to use a laptop, computer or device with a large screen to ensure you can participate without the limitations of using a smaller device. Reliable internet connection is vital.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation is possible up to two weeks before the start of a course without cost. After that point, the full course fee is due independent of whether the registered person takes part in the course or not. Participants can be substituted without charge.

You can find full details of our terms and conditions for our training courses including cancellation and transfer policies here.


In this highly interactive A-CSM course, participants will take a more in-depth look at what makes the difference between a good Scrum Master and a great one, including the tools and practices they will need to help increase their team’s agility and responsiveness.

Through the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster workshop you will learn to:

  • Facilitate dialogue between the Product Owner, team members, customers, stakeholders, and executives
  • Respond confidently when encountering resistance to change, lack of engagement, low motivation, and unavailability of critical people.
  • Help your company adopt Scrum and support executives committed to Agile values.
  • Remove impediments that prevent long-term, deep adoption of Scrum and Agile methodologies by all parts of the business.
  • Explain the value of the Agile Scrum framework and processes to sceptics.
  • Increase developer engagement to encourage greater accountability, commitment, and buy-in.
  • Leverage your learning to gain recognition and status as the local Agile expert in your company.
How is the online training different to the in-person course?

The course structure and content itself is very similar. The Learning Outcomes are the same, as is the Certification. Being a live delivery, we include many more breaks. We have also amended the in-person course with exercises more appropriate and effective for an online/remote experience. Watch the short video below with trainer Karim Harbott to find out more about our live, online training.
