PSM™ Scrummaster Certification Process

Scrum.org™ is a leading global certification body for scrum and agile practices. A membership with Scrum.org™ will provide you with a means to collaborate with other scrum enthusiasts helping you to learn, share and improve your scrum skillset. As a member you will have access to expert blogs and other scrum resources.

The Professional Scrum Master level 1 (PSM I) assessment is available to anyone who wishes to validate his or her fundamental knowledge of the Scrum framework and its application. Those that pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PSM I Certification to demonstrate their mastery of the content.

Taking a course is not required. While a 2-day Professional Scrum Foundations or Professional Scrum Master course is highly recommended, if you feel you already possess a high level of Scrum knowledge, you have the option to take the PSM I assessment directly. The PSM I assessment is grounded in the Scrum Body of Knowledge at Scrum.org, but is quite difficult. Parts of the assessment may ask the taker to think about or interpret the meaning from the Scrum Guide. Or, in some cases, apply their own experience.

If you pass the PSM I assessment you will receive the industry-recognized "PSM I" certification, along with a PSM I logo that you can use to identify your achievement. In addition, your name will be posted publicly for colleagues, managers, and potential employers to see.

Unlike other Scrum certifications that require only class attendance, Scrum.org certification requires a minimum score on an online assessment. Attending a course is neither required nor sufficient for certification. This gives Scrum.org certification teeth and ensures that it has true value in the marketplace.

Microsoft® uses the PSM I assessment to validate knowledge as part of its Silver and Gold Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) competencies.

Below is an overview of the exam process:

  • *Fee: $150
  • Passing score: 85%
  • Time limit: 60 minutes
  • Format: Multiple Choice and True/False
  • Study Topics: PSM Subject Areas
  • Recommended course: Professional Scrum Master
  • Practice Assessment: Scrum Open

*Course fee excludes: Examination fee of $150 (paid directly to Scrum.org)
