Jim Schiel is a Certified Scrum Trainer with a strong background in enterprise level Scrum installations and agile development in a regulated environment. Schiel worked at Siemens Health Services for 23 years, where he worked initially as a developer, then as a manager for 16 years, eventually playing a leading role in creating one of the largest Scrum software development implementations in the world. Starting in 2005, Jim pioneered the use of Scrum with his development teams and, as the practice began to spread, took on a coaching role, planning and executing the implementation of Scrum and XP practices across six products, seven development sites, and over 1,200 developers. As a business process engineer at Siemens, he helped identify, document, and implement best practices for the software development that maintained the organization's ISO-9001 certification and satisfied FDA medical device requirements.
Schiel is a “first-generation” Certified Scrum Trainer and has been training Scrum Masters since 2005. He received his initial Scrum Master certification from one of the co-founders of the Scrum method and was also certified as a trainer by the same individual. Jim has taught and coached over 1,000 Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Scrum Teams from California to Finland since receiving his certification.

After taking the 2-day Certified ScrumMaster course, students are eligible to take the CSM Exam online through the Scrum Alliance website. It has 35 questions and no time limit in which to complete. Candidates may bookmark questions, change answers to questions, and even stop the exam, returning to it to complete the questions at a later time within the 90-day period. For more information, please visit the Scrum Alliance directly at:http:/scrumalliance.org
WHAT HAPPENS IF I FAIL THE CSM EXAM?
Students who do not pass the CSM exam the first time may re-take the exam immediately (no "cooling off" period required) or take it again any time within the 90-day period at no additional charge. After the 90-day period, CSM candidates must pay $25 to re-take the exam. After three (3) attempts it is recommended that the CSM candidate take another CSM course before being permitted to re-take the exam.
Please note, it is required that students attend the full 14 hours of this class to be eligible for certification. Frequently asked questions about the exam can be found on our Scrum Guide
