I enjoyed John’s facilitation techniques that enabled us to learn together as a group and not just get talked at

Who should attend an A-CSM course?

This course is designed for the Scrum Master who has the desire to grow their skill set and become more confident in the concepts and techniques necessary to progress their career. For those looking to differentiate themselves from the pack, A-CSM certification arms Scrum Masters with new skills, and also an industry-recognised distinction from other Scrum Masters. Agile Coaches, consultants, program and project managers, facilitators, and technical leaders can all benefit tremendously by building on their CSM certification with the A-CSM.

Everyone is welcome to take this course, and there are zero restrictions on registering for the class. However, to receive your A-CSM certification from Scrum Alliance students must have an active CSM certification and satisfy the following requirements:

  • Complete the A-CSM course, delivered by a Path to CSP Educator
  • Demonstrate at least 12-months of demonstrated Scrum Master experience by uploading your role-specific expertise to your Scrum Alliance Profile

What will you learn on the A-CSM course?

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.
