Event Details



There are many techniques and practices that can help a ScrumMaster perform their role effectively and successfully. This is one of the few CSM workshops that will explore many of these techniques and practices through hands on simulations while keeping Agile’s values and principles in the spotlight!

Being a great ScrumMaster goes well beyond helping to facilitate the Scrum activities. Success depends on teamwork and teams, impediment identification and removal, collaboration, focus and continuous improvement.

As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of ScrumMaster, the person tasked with helping the Scrum Team and organization find success through teamwork, focus, collaboration and continuous improvement.

The Rocket Nine Solutions Certified ScrumMaster course is a two-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed using Scrum. The CSM course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the ScrumMaster role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a ScrumMaster with Scrum. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can immediately apply once they return to the office.

Course Benefits

Upon completion of the course, students are eligible for the following benefits:

  • A two-year membership with the Scrum Alliance and the CSM designation
  • Certification exam fee included
  • Can earn PDUs (one PDU per contact hour with the Project Management Institute)
  • Satisfy 14 of the 21 required training contact hours for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) as well as a strong foundation for the associated certifying exam
  • Receive SEUs towards your Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) certification
