There are 3 different type of SCRUM certificate.

One is from SCRUM Alliance https://www.scrumalliance.org/ which offers Certified SCRUM Master (CSM).You have to attend 2 days training from their certified trainer/institute before sitting the exam.

Second one is from Professional SCRUM Master (PSM) from https://www.scrum.org/. There are 3 levels of this certification.This is is relatively difficult to achieve because there are 80 questions (as compare to 35 in CSM) which has to solve within an hour. In addition questions covers in depth knowledge of SCRUM and Agile. There is no official requirement to get the training, you can just register online to give the exam. If you don't have any SCRUM experience then training will help you a lot. Furthermore, there is a free assessment of 30 questions on the web site to get you an idea of what type of questions will be in the exam. Try to give the assessment and check if you can get over 90% in free assessment.

Third one is from https://www.scrumstudy.com/. The first one "Scrum Fundamental Certified" are actually free. They have a book SCRUM Body of Knowledge (SBOK) similar to PMBOK (over 300 pages and free available https://www.scrumstudy.com/SBOK/SCRUMstudy-SBOK-Guide-2016.pdf). This books is different than scrum guide which is used in CSM and PSM certificates.

Hi Vijay, the issue with scrumstudy is that they have their own scrum guide, which is not the original scrum guide. I am not saying they don't cover scrum topics, but I am saying that the PSM and the CSM is based on the original Scrum Guide by the two creators/founders pf Scrum. Further, the PSM and CSM is well known in the industry. The PSM is gaining traction as a higher standard than the CSM, and it is a lot cheaper too.

Vijay -

I'd echo Sante's support for the PSM I certification, but would also suggest you consider the PMI-ACP as it covers a broader base of practice than Scrum and unless you are solely targeting that framework, having some versatility would help...
