Scrum Master Certified SMC

2 days


Scrum is the most popular Agile project management and project development methodology/framework in use today. It is an adaptive, iterative, efficient and effective framework designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout a project. Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective accountability and continued progress.

This is a highly engaging course that provides participants with an understanding of the Scrum philosophy and principles which are part of the Scrum Framework. The Scrum Framework, as defined in the Scrum Body of Knowledge Guide (SBOK Guide) is widely used across portfolios, programs, and projects in any industry, for products, services and any other deliverables to be developed. The Scrum Framework is applicable to projects of any size or complexity. A copy of the SBOK Guide will be provided to all participants of this training course.

This course provides participants with a practical knowledge of Scrum including core and non-core roles, focusing on the core role of Scrum Master. Within a Scrum team, the Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the project; clears impediments for the team; and ensures that Scrum processes are being followed.

Successful candidates will be awarded the Scrum Master Certified (SMC) certification by SCRUMstudy after passing the certification exam. Scrum Master Certified (SMC) professionals are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an environment conducive to completing the project successfully.
