If you’ve achieved a certification through the Scrum Alliance one of the things you need to do to maintain your certification is to renew it every two years. In order to do this you will have to earn Scrum Educational Units (SEUs). Two of the most common questions I get at the end of each Certified Scrum Master or Certified Scrum Product Owner class are “How many SEUs do I need to renew?” and “How do I earn SEUs?"
The number of SEUs you have to earn depends on the level of certification(s) you have and there are a number of ways to earn them. The Scrum Alliance has a web page explaining how SEUs work here: https://www.scrumalliance.org/get-certified/scrum-education-units.
But, in an effort to help simplify all of it, I asked TJay Gerber, Global Certification Manager and Education Department Product Owner for the Scrum Alliance to let me interview him about how SEUs work, how people can earn them, and how they can figure out how many they need. In this interview we talk through the whole thing, so if you have questions, this should help.
