The Scrum Alliance authorized training institutes run a 2 day CSM training. After the training you have couple of weeks to take the test. It is an open book test and can be taken from your home. Once the training is complete and the trainer submits your credential, a link will be sent to you for the test.

CSM training and certification will give you the knowledge about Agile, SCRUM, KANBAN, Story Point estimations etc. You can claim to have Agile knowledge and seek opportunities as SCRUM Master, Agile Project Manager.

Besides CSM from SCRUM Alliance you can also explore Scrum Certifications from scrumstudy.com.

Rami, as far as I know CSM from Scrum Alliance is mandatory 2 training that is not possible to do it on line.

On the other hand you have the PSM from scrum org, that you can do it online.

You can google CSM vs PSM vs ASM and you'll find a lot of tables with those that allow on line training.

By the way, some CSM courses will give you 14 PDU for your PMI Certification.

Thanks for the Information Maria - Appreciate it.

Do you think this is a good certification for PM's from your own point of view ?

Rami, I'm still in Mode analyze ON. Also I have in mind ITLT. I will let you know.
There are certainly a lot of overlaps between the PM and the SM. If your project is small enough, you should be able to do both roles.

Thank you Stephane.
We have a big project shaping up which may require parallel sprints. In this case, I would suggest separate SMs for each parallel sprint, and a separate PM to handle the project-level work.

Yes, that makes sense a lot - It is better for sure.

From the advice given to me, the goal of acquiring the CSM should be to eventually earn the CSP, OR, simply put the efforts towards PMI-ACP. For increasing value as a multi-faceted project manager, my recommendation is for PMI-ACP.

It would give you education that would count towards your ACP application, Andrew. Not to mention 14 PDUs. :)

Andrew, For sure I will target ACP if I go for the CSM as I was given the same advice. It won't hurt to take the CSM first because as Stephane mentioned, it will give you at least 14 PDU's that will count towards the ACP Credential.

Thank you Stéphane, I'm more clear now. I had made some incorrect assumptions.
