About Your Trainer

This Certified Scrum Professional Scrum Master course will be delivered by the below Path to CSP Educator:

John McFadyen

Who should attend the CSP-SM training?

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, CSP-SM 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 A-CSM certification with the CSP-SM.

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

  • Complete the CSP-SM course, delivered by a Path to CSP Educator
  • Demonstrate at least 24-months of demonstrated Scrum Master experience by uploading your role-specific expertise to your Scrum Alliance Profile

We have also amended the in-person course with exercises more appropriate and effective for an online/remote experience.
