To gain the CSM certification, candidates must:

  • Understand the concepts of Scrum

The Exam
  • Score a minimum of 24 correct answers out of 35 questions to pass the CSM test
  • On successfully passing the test, you will be asked to accept the License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile

You will then receive the official designation of Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) from Scrum Alliance, along with a two-year membership with Scrum Alliance.

If you are already a Scrum Alliance Member, the CSM Test will be available through a link from your dashboard. Once the test is complete, you will be asked to accept a license agreement and your CSM badge will appear on your profile.

The CSM Test fee is included in your course fee; however, if you fail the test a second time, you will need to pay a $25 exam fee to Scrum Alliance before taking the exam a third time.
