Hi guys,

I just been offered to become a "Scrum Master Accredited Certification" and I saw that it's very ease to obtain it.
First I would have to spend 1 1/2 hours looking at some cartoony videos that explain all the major concepts of Scrum and after that, sign up for a test.

I got my Certified Scrum Master in the "traditional way" two years ago, having the 2 day training course with Certified Scrum Trainers and passing a Certified Scrum Master test.

Anybody knows what's the difference between both certifications? A "Scrum Master Accredited Certification" is the "new" Certified Scrum Master certification? Is it an official certification?

Thank you all for helping me clarifying these concepts.

Unless the Scrum Master test you end up taking is PSMI or PSMII, then it won't be an official scrum.org one.
