Hi, I took a Scrum course and now I 'm preparing for the PSM I assesment. I understood so far, that I have to pay 100 $ to do the test. The question for me is: What if I fail to pass the test first try? Do I have another try or do I have to pay another 100$.
if you did an official Scrum.org course (Professional Scrum Foundations or Professional Scrum Master), you get one try for free. Usually, you get your code a few days after you finished the course, depending on the speed of your trainer. :-) If you did not complete an official Scrum.org course, you do not get any free attempts. Every try costs 100 $ - so each time you fail, you have to purchase another attempt, if you want to try again.
@chanda, the passwords are only valid for 1 attempt at the assessment. Only students of official Scrum.org classes receive a free second attempt if they take the test within 14 days of the class and do not pass.
