Advanced Certified Scrum Master Training (ACSM)

Advanced Certified Scrum Master Training (ACSM)

The Advanced ScrumMaster certification course picks up where the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training course ends. In fact, a CSM certification and a year of experience as a Scrum Master is a prerequisite for the training. The ACSM takes the novice Scrum Master on an exciting journey, exploring the skills that make a Scrum Master truly effective. These skills include an strong understanding of Lean Development, Agile Development; mastery of the Scrum framework; facilitation; coaching; and the responsibilities of the Scrum Master to the Development Team, the Product Owner, and the Organization.

A significantly more rigorous curriculum, the Advanced Certified Scrum Master (ACSM) includes in-person training time, self-study, and coaching time with the instructor.

Certification is earned once the instructor believes that all of the learning objectives for the curriculum have been achieved.

This course can also be offered as on-site training by KSI anywhere across North America.

The class runs 8 hours each day, including 30-60 minutes for lunch and various smaller breaks. Achievement of the ACSM will also include self-guided study on the part of the student as well as webinars and remote coaching discussions (e.g.,phone or Skype).
