How to become a Certified Scrum Master?
The process of becoming a Certified Scrum Master is fairly straightforward.
Recommendation: Even though it's not required, it's strongly recommended to have experience as a Scrum master, remember, a certification is a milestone in your career, you must have working experience if you want your certification to have significance, think about it, does it makes sense to have a certification in an unknown area?
So, the process:
- You need to take a two-day course with a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), on-site, it means, you have to be there, not online, not remote, but be there, Let me tell you, it will be good for you, you'll learn or fill the gaps you might have by doing. These seminars are highly interactive and full of time-boxed activities, you'll quickly see the benefit of the scrum methodology and you'll see the results almost immediately.
- Take the test. The test is online, it consists of 35 questions, some can be tricky and that's good, you'll prove that you know about Scrum. You have to answer at least 24 questions correctly (68%) in order to pass the test.
- Take a day (or two) to enjoy this milestone, then continue growing.
