Our Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® (A-CSM®) workshop is a fun and engaging two-day immersion program designed to take your scrum master skills to the next level. You know Scrum. Tackle coaching, organizational change, and scaling in this interactive class. Your trainer will share practical experiences and proven techniques for becoming the best scrum master in your workplace.

To be eligible for the A-CSM designation, attendees must hold a CSM from the Scrum Alliance and have twelve months experience in a scrum master role.
