Professional Scrum™ Certifications
Globally recognized certification tests prove your knowledge.
If you want to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the Scrum framework and how it is applied, Scrum.org certifications are a great way to do so. All of our certification tests embody the principles of Professional Scrum while providing a way for you to assess your current abilities and identify areas for improvement. Scrum.org has certifications covering topics that range from the fundamentals of Scrum, Scrum accountabilities, and topics beyond the Scrum framework - practices that complement Professional Scrum.
Scrum.org certifications are highly respected because they are based on the Professional Scrum Competencies and not based simply on attendance. The test truly validates your knowledge. You must receive a score 85% or higher on the test in order to pass and receive the certification.
Certifications decoupled from training
While Scrum.org classes help build your knowledge, our certifications prove what you know. To receive Professional Scrum certification, you need to prove your knowledge, understanding and ability to apply Scrum in the real-world. You can take Professional Scrum certification tests whether you have taken a Scrum.org class or not. There is value in validating the knowledge you gain in the class, but we also understand that some people prefer to self-learn and leverage their experience. Each Scrum.org training class includes a free attempt at the Scrum.org certification test.
Gauge your basic knowledge of Scrum, software development using Scrum, Product Owner accountabilities, the fundamentals of scaling Scrum and more using the Scrum.org Open Assessments. There is no fee for these assessments and they can be used by anyone to prepare for the certification test, validate your basic knowledge, during job interviews and much more.
No Renewal Costs
Professional Scrum certifications are yours for life with no renewal costs or proof of future learning required. Once you earn them, you keep them! Our experience shows that professionals are always learning and requiring them to list ongoing learning is never verified and just people going through motions without any real added value. Once you receive the certification, you will retain it and will be listed on the Scrum.org website and remain there forever.
All of our tests are in English, however many of our test takers successfully use the Google Translate Plugin to take the test to pass their certification. Read this support article to help you.
