What is this course?

The Advanced Certified ScrumMaster™ (A-CSM™) course is part of the Scrum Alliances Agile Coaching Pathway; this step in the journey is a combination of workshop, applied learning on the job and reflection.

This programme is aimed at practicing ScrumMasters and Agile Coaches. Growing skills such as facilitation and coaching, and building knowledge to better serve Development Teams, Product Owners and the wider organisation.  This programmes focus is on growing you as team coaches and change agents.

The two-day workshop builds on a combination of interactive exercises, practical real-life examples, and lively discussion and will equip you with the knowledge required to be an effective ScrumMaster.  However real learning happens through application and reflection, so after the workshop in order to achieve the A-CSM™ there is the applied practice and reflection element.  There are two ways to complete the reflection:

  • •  Through 1 to 1 coaching up to 3 sessions usually lasting 45 minutes, over videoconference.

This is the most important part of the programme that allows for reflection on how you are applying your knowledge and skills, this is why it is a mandatory part of the A-CSM™.
