A Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) is an individual who has been taught, by a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®), the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that will enable them to fulfill the role of ScrumMaster or Scrum team member. A Certified ScrumMaster course is a first step on the path to becoming more Agile. Experience and continuing education are necessary next steps to becoming a true, practicing Scrum professional. To demonstrate deep understanding and experience with Scrum, CSMs are encouraged to apply for and become Certified Scrum Professionals (CSPs).
