Anyone who is interested in becoming a Scrum Master
40 Recertification units every 2 years
Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) professionals have a practical, working knowledge of
Scrum that equips them to implement and work in a Scrum environment.
SMC™ professionals are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an
environment conducive to completing the project successfully. The Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the project; clears impediments for the team; and, ensures that Scrum processes are being followed.
This certification is appropriate for anyone who is interested in working as a
Scrum Master or for someone who is already a Scrum master in his organization. Scrum Master is an important role in any Scrum team and need not be a technology expert to be effective. Moreover, although Scrum is popular in the IT industry, it can be used effectively across different industries. The SBOK Guide, on which the SMC course is based on, can be used as an effective guide for implementation.
There is no formal prerequisite for this certification. However, it is recommended that those interested in (SMC™) first complete the Scrum Developer Certified (SDC™) certification.
