Certified ScrumMaster Training

Certified ScrumMaster Training with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training, as well as other Agile and Scrum courses, through a partnership with the only Scrum Alliance authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) based in Michigan, Chet Hendrickson. Chet was the first signatory of the Agile Manifesto and is a globally recognized Scrum Trainer.

While many CST’s fly into metro Detroit to deliver a class, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and local Agile and Scrum meetups. We have strong ties to Agile companies in the metro Detroit area.  We have successfully run this course for multiple teams in the Great Lakes area.

What is Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training?

Scrum is a very useful agile framework for completing complex projects.

This intensive two-day course will prepare you to take on the ScrumMaster role and is taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer. We’ll cover pragmatic, time-tested practices for managing product backlogs, long and short-range planning, project execution, and progress reporting. We’ll also examine many facets of Scrum, including the project lifecycle, roles, ceremonies, and artifacts.

You will participate in exercises, in-depth discussions, case studies and techniques to help illustrate practices and principles. After completing the course, you will be eligible for ScrumMaster Certification with the Scrum Alliance. You will also receive a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, an organization that provides valuable materials and resources exclusively to CSMs.

Additional Benefits of taking our CSM course

Participants are eligible for 14 Education Hours for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner application and 14 PMI PDUs (Professional Development Units)
