Growth with Scrum certified
Greetings to everyone.
I am testing background and worked in Agile for couple of project. I am ISTQB certified already an wish to take up another external certification. As I worked in Agile project few people recommending to take Scrum Master Certification.
So wish to know growth level for a testing resource having scrum certified/ value added to testing CV? Please clarify.
Do you plan to become a scrum master, or do you want to continue working on agile teams as a tester? If it's the latter, consider the Professional Scrum Developer (PSD I) certification. In Scrum, testers are part of the development team, and a lot of the concepts (test-driven development, cross-training, code coverage) are covered by the certificate. I think it would definitely add value to your testing CV.
The Professional Scrum Master certifications are lean more towards people who want to be a manager, team lead, or agile coach. It might be a good way to advance your career, but it won't be as effective at supporting your current job role.
