Unlike other Scrum certifications that are awarded for attendance in a class, earning a certification requires proof of knowledge and understanding by passing the certification test. You can take the Professional Scrum certification test whether you have attended a class or not, though each training class is a great learning experience and includes a free attempt at the associated certification.

Protecting the integrity of the certification process is very important to us. By taking a test with you agree to abide by our Standard of Conduct. You will not receive information about the specific questions that were answered correctly or incorrectly, however  you will receive a breakdown of your performance based on the Professional Scrum Competencies.
