Become a Certified Scrum Master® from Silicon Valley Tech Executive and Agile Expert, Eric Rapin
Learn the secrets behind Silicon Valley’s high-tech successes from Eric Rapin (CST), a former technology executive from Salesforce, Tableau, Adobe, and Apple.
Eric will teach the Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster® course using highly-interactive exercises that will give you the skills needed to work with Scrum teams in complex enterprise environments. This course is suited for all levels of Scrum experience. A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams use Scrum effectively and perform at the highest level. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs help the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework, while protecting the team from both internal and external distractions.
This course will feature case studies, games and interactive exercises that will teach you how to accelerate your Scrum practice. Upon successful completion of this course, you will:
Be prepared to pass the Certified ScrumMaster test (new and revised for 2019)
Be qualified to lead teams in any environment or industry as a Scrum Master
Have the opportunity to network with industry leaders and Agile professionals
Have access to a 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance
Have access to membership benefits to join local user groups, online social networks, and additional member-only resources.
Be able to use a specially designed logo to highlight your newly-earned CSM credentials.

After successful completion of the 2-day Certified ScrumMaster course, students are eligible to take the CSM Assessment Exam online through the Scrum Alliance.
