The PSM Certification
The certification as Professional Scrum Master (PSM I) by Scrum.org is designed for interested beginners to the Scrum framework, primarily from the software industry. A transfer of the ideas and principles to other fields is however possible — such as Product Development, Service Design, Organizational Development. Scrum is particularly appropriate in project situations that favor an explorative approach to cope with continuous change.
The PSM certification is designed for Scrum Masters and other agile practitioners to signal their understanding of the framework and principles to employers and customers.
The PSM certification is recognized worldwide and is an important asset in a certification portfolio for anyone dealing with Scrum or aspects thereof in their professional environment.
We actively attend students beyond the professional training during exam application and preparation. We answer questions and help resolving problems that may turn up, using our experience in PSM preparation and our up-to-date knowledge. We finally lead candidates to exam success.
