Almost all IT companies are following Scrum and looking for people who can join their Scrum teams as Scrum Master, Product Owners or Agile Coach.

We strive to create great value for our CSM® certification training course participants with a lot of support and study material designed to give you an edge over your peers.
Agile and Scrum are ever-growing fields, with different levels of Agile certification, and you can choose them as you go up in your Scrum Master journey. The CSM® training program in Canada is considered to be a starting point in Agile. The next challenge is to get an active role in a Scrum team or start a fresh implementation in your organization. In both cases, you would need a particular set of skills, such as facilitation, team building, servant leadership, and communication, along with a deeper understanding of the Scrum philosophy. Though we try to equip you with enough knowledge and understanding to lead implementation in your organization, getting structured training in a few areas is always helpful.
Here is a table of different certifications and their value for an IT professional –
|CSM®||Scrum Alliance||Go for a Scrum Master role|

A Certified Scrum Master® workshop costs around 22000-28000, depending on the provider. The cost of certification is included in the CSM workshop and is collected by the trainer only. The CSM® exam fee is deposited by the trainer when they submit your attendance for the two days of the CSM® workshop. The certificate comes with a two-year validity. After that, you need to renew it by paying USD 100 for another two years. Two-year membership of Scrum Alliance is also included in this cost.

In Scrum, there are three roles, i.e. Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Development Team. The Certified Scrum Master® certification training in Canada focuses on the Scrum Master, whereas the Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®) course focuses on the Product Owner. Before choosing any course, we should know that the Scrum Master is the one who establishes an environment where the team can be effective and ensures a good relationship between the team, the product owner and others who are outside the team. Hence, to become a great Scrum Master, you should attend the CSM® certification and training course.
CSM® – Certified Scrum Master and A-CSM® – Advanced Certified Scrum Master®, both credentials are offered by Scrum Alliance®.
