Scrum Master Certified (SMC™)


Agile project management practices have become the standard for software development projects. More recently, Agile has grown beyond software projects as more and more companies adopt Agile concepts and methodologies.

Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) professionals are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an environment conducive to delivering sustainable, constant, and indefinite business value. The Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the product delivery; clears impediments for the team; and, ensures that Scrum processes are being followed and adopted.

Successful candidates will be awarded the globally recognized Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) certification after passing the certification exam. Registration for this course also includes free enrollment in our on-line, self-paced course content.

Delivery Options: 2-Day Hands-on Classroom Workshop, Self-paced eLearning, or Online Virtual Workshop
