PSM IIThe Professional Scrum Master level 2 (PSM II) assessment is available to anyone who has passed the PSM I assessment and wishes to demonstrate his or her ability to apply the Scrum framework to solving complex problems in the real world. Those that pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PSM II Certification as an indication of their abilities.
Anyone attempting the PSM II should have in-depth Scrum experience and/or have taken the Professional Scrum Master course prior to taking this assessment. However, attending a course is neither necessary nor sufficient for certification. The PSM II assessment is incredibly difficult, and consists of multiple-choice questions, case study questions, and essays.
