Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) is Here!

Are you a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®) with at least 12 months of experience who is ready to take the next step in your Agile Journey?

The Scrum Alliance® has recently introduced the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM), allowing you to continue to grow.

This 2-day class explores many in-depth topics:

  • The Agile values in your organization
  • How to best facilitate and coach team members, customers, executives and stakeholders
  • Techniques to help your team on their journey to self-organization
  • Expanding the impact of Scrum in your organization
  • Identify ways to scale Scrum and Agile beyond your team

A-CSM+ Learning Beyond The Classroom:
While not required by the Scrum Alliance, the expert trainers at The Braintrust Consulting Group believe that this advanced level of training should extend beyond the two days of classroom learning. To cement your learning after the class, Braintrust’s A-CSM program continues with three months of access to monthly ScrumMastery coaching calls with a Braintrust coach and other A-CSM attendees as well as access to a private google group where you can share ideas and questions with fellow ScrumMaster & coaches ($600 value).


This class utilizes the real-world experiences of attendees through practical tools and techniques that can be implemented immediately on your return to work. In more ways than one, you will be immersed deep into the world of the ScrumMaster.

Learners will be able to increase their day-to-day efficiency and directly affect positive organizational change. Participants will delve deeper into Agile fundamentals, facilitation, Scrum Mastery, group dynamics, personal development, and servant leadership.

After experiencing this advanced course, you will serve as a catalyst of continuous improvement and productivity in your organization.
