The Professional Scrum Master level III (PSM III) assessment is available to anyone who has passed the PSM I and PSM II assessments and wishes to demonstrate a distinguished level of Scrum mastery. PSM III certificate holders prove that they have a deep understanding of the application of Scrum, Scrum practices, the Scrum Values, and have the ability to apply Scrum in a variety of complex team and organizational situations.
Those that pass the PSM III assessment will receive the global, industry recognized PSM III Certification as an indication of their distinguished level of Scrum mastery, proving that not only do they understand Scrum and can apply it, but can also mentor and coach people or teams who are adopting Scrum.
Anyone attempting the PSM III should have a very high level of Scrum knowledge, 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 III assessment is incredibly difficult, and consists of multiple-choice questions, case study questions, and essays. Achieving PSM III is the highest demonstration of knowledge any Professional Scrum Master can make.
