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.
