Hi everyone,

I would like to prepare for the SAFe Scrum Master certification and I wanted to ask if someone could recommend a suitable course to prepare for the syllabus and the exam.

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Unlike the certification exams, you need to take a SAFe course in order to take the exam. You can search the available offerings.

I would offer one piece of cautionary advice, however: The role that SAFe calls "Scrum Master" isn't consistent with the set of accountabilities that is defined in the Scrum Guide or with what you would learn through a PSM course. The name may be the same and there may be some related skills, but the overall scope of the role on a team is very different.

Are you clear on why you want this certification, which is for a different framework, rather than gain a Scrum Master credential that is properly aligned to the Scrum Framework itself?

Hi @Ian @Thomas, 


Many thanks for your messages. 

I have the PSM1 certification by and i am aware that SAFe Scrum Master is a certification with a different scope from PSM but my company is requesting that i do this SAFe Scrum Master certification.

My concern is that I am not sure which may be the most suitable platform to take the course or which platform or Web offers the best options or best courses to prepare for this certification.


Do you know the best option or some platform that you could recommend for that?


Many thanks in advance.
