Getting Ready for the Scrum Exam

There are two certification exams students can take after completing this course:

IPM Scrum Certification

The Institute of Project Management (IPM) provides this examination and certificate. It happens four days after the course’s final day and is included in the course fee. You will receive the IPM Scrum Certification after passing the exam.

This test also prepares you for the optional Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM I) certification test.

Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM I) is Optional

PSM I is a widely accepted certification showing a basic Scrum mastery level. This exam’s completion is optional.
Those who also want to earn this certification must submit a separate application and pay the exam fee ($150 USD per attempt) directly to Scrum.org. IPM does not administer this exam, so the course fee does not pay for it.
With more than 671,000 people certified, Professional Scrum Master™ certifications are widely recognised as proof of the highest level of knowledge.

We had a small class of students from all kinds of different backgrounds - HR, IT, Sales, Product Owner. I highly recommend the Institute. They offer considerable value add. Had a query and the head of course (was not expecting it) took a short phone call out of hours so that will tell you the customer mantra. Go for it!

I've been working in Tech for 8 years now and the Agile class turned into a huge unlock for me, it was the way our dev teams have been doing business and the environment we work in the entire time. I look forward to getting my next PM credential from you.

Our instructor was someone with hands on experience, quite a few years behind him, implementing scrums across multiple teams and contexts. Not only was it a unique experience it left us wanting for more, more stories, more lessons, just more.
