PSM

Course Overview

Scrum.org's Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course provides advanced training on Scrum principles, the Scrum Framework as defined in the Scrum Guide and servant leadership.

The PSM course was initially designed by Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, in 2009 as a significant update to the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course that Ken developed with the Scrum Alliance back in 2002.  

Since 2009, the PSM course has been maintained and enhanced by Scrum.org and its global group of 160+ Professional Scrum Trainers, where it has evolved into the industry’s highest quality and most consistently delivered Scrum Master training.
