So You've Made the Decision to get a Scrum Certification?

Certified Scrum Product Owner® professionals have been taught the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that enable them to fulfill the role of Product Owner on a Scrum team. CSPOs are typically the individuals who are closest to the "business side" of the project. They are charged by the organization to "get the product out" and are expected to do the best possible job of satisfying all the stakeholders. CSPOs maintain the product backlog and ensure that everyone knows the priorities.

A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

Certified Scrum Developers have demonstrated through a combination of formal training and a technical skills assessment that they have a working understanding of Scrum principles and have learned specialized Agile engineering skills.

Good for you! We've been providing Certified Scrum Training, both public and private, since 2005. Here are some facts about our training courses...


  1. There aren't many trainers in the industry with more experience as instructors than ours nor have they reached as many students. Jim Schiel has taught the certification courses a combined 278 times to nearly 5,000 students as of February 2016. Many of those students go on to be successful Scrum Masters and continue to communicate with Jim on a regular basis. A number of Jim's students have gone on to be successful Scrum Trainers.
  2. We've taught public and private courses in 13 countries around the world from Canada to India.
  3. We've taught courses for the US Army and the Department of Defense, NASA and JPL, Walmart and Target, CapitalOne, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Nationwide. We've taught courses for small businesses with 10 developers and large businesses with entire buildings filled with developers. And they say lots of nice things about our courses when they complete our courses, too.
  4. We have a GSA contract with the US Government to provide training for US Government agencies. Click here for more information.
