    I'm wondering why the certifications from Scrum.org doesn't have any license number... I just got the PSM I Certification and for me, it doesn't look right.

    Anybody else got this same feeling?

    Hi Pablo,

    Do you mean the actual certificate number issued 1-N?
    If you want to see how many certificates are issued you can look at the register, this lists all people who have
    passed the exam, if you sorted them in date order you could work out what number you are.
    Makes no difference if you are 1 or 355, its the principals of scrum that are important.

    17th November 2009 exam number 1 pass was issued for PSM 1

    Congratulations Pablo you are number 22064 from the holdings as of today.
    I am number 16482 of the 22145 SM that have taken the leap and passed since 17Th Nov 2009.
    This when the very first PSM1 No 1 qualified.

    You can see some of the veretans on here, that contribute in mass to the success of SCRUM.

    Hope that sheds some light on numbers of SM who have taken PSM1 and passed.

    NB PSM2 is much different, only 169 people have ever been issued a PSM2 qualification.

    Hi Pablo

    As far as I know, the scrum.org qualifications do not include or involve a "license", with the possible exception of trainer.

    I remember back in 2004 I did Ken's Scrum Master training course, and he *did* give me a Scrum Master "license". That was long before the days of scrum.org. Never once have I been asked for that license, though I think I've still got it somewhere.

    Hi Michael and Ian, thank you for your feedback. Your clarifications make sense for sure.

    Michael, how in the world you figured out what is my number? I don't see that number anywhere.. I would like to learn more about it.
    Thanks!

    Hi Pablo,

    When you pass your name is entered here on the database
    https://www.scrum.org/Assessments/Certification-Lists?AssessmentName=PSM%20I
    download the database, and sort them into date order, search for your name.
    This will give you the number from how ever many it is when you check it.

    Regards

    Michael

    I found it. What Ken gave me on April 6 2004 was a "Scrum Individual License". It says (in part):

    "In fulfilment of this License, Licensee is provided with:

    1. Scrum methodology, as a PDF;
    2. Listing as a Certified ScrumMaster on the Certified ScrumMaster website;
    3. Scrum software, as a Microsoft Excel 2000 add-in; and,
    4. Scrum training materials as used in the class"

    I don't have the PDF or the training materials any more, but my CSM listing was grandfathered in to the Scrum Alliance register. I no longer have the "Scrum Software" referred to either, but as I recall it was for backlog management and burndowns.

    For what it's worth, this antique "license" doesn't have a number either. It was valid for 2 years and was signed by Ken Schwaber on behalf of an organization called "Advanced Development Methods". In theory I suppose my Scrum Alliance membership must renew it in some form.

    Hello everyone,

    I just passed the PSM I assestment and I have the same doubt as Pablo said. When you are saying "download the database", how should I do that?

    Is there any other easy way to know the license number?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sergio

    Sergio,

    copy and paste it into an excel sheet.
    That link opens up the sheet with all the data on it.

    Regards
