Hi all,

Was thinking of signing up for the Professional Scrum Master Cert course: http://courses.scrum....­

Has anyone done it before? Any opinions of it or whether the Certified Scrum Master course is better?

Thanks,
Tony

Hi Tony,

The industry standard is the CSM ( Certified Scrum Master ) course (http://www.scrumallia...­) and certification - the fee for which is normally included in training and you can take up the exam online after the training.
If the training includes the same certification and content go for it , else wait for this one to happen.

Cheers,
Amit

The PSM class is the only update to the Scrum certification curriculum since Ken Schwaber created it. The PSM class is a better option for a number of reasons - primarily that the material is constantly updated by 160 of the worlds leading trainers and centrally distributed, meaning you always get the most recent material. See this blog post explaining why http://www.clarus.co....­.

Disclaimer - I am a Scrum.org trainer and specifically chose Scrum.org over the Scrum Alliance after a good long review of both and talking to some of the most highly respected Scrum names in the world.

Thanks Amit / Edwin,

Any of the reviews that I've seen on the net seem to indicate that they're both quite similar (as they were both designed by Ken Schwaber), but I think the fact that it's more recently updated and lack of ongoing maintenance costs for the certification wink might swing me towards PSM!

Thanks for the advice!
Tony
