Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster Training

Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster Training with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster (CSP-SM) training, as well as other Agile and Scrum courses, through a partnership with a Scrum Alliance authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and Path to CSP educator with extensive Agile and Scrum experience.

In a pre-Covid world our training would take place at our location in the Farmington Hills/Novi area, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or at your location anywhere around the world. Our Agile workshops and Agile coaching sessions are now offered online/virtually, reducing your need to travel.

Note that while many CST’s fly into metro Detroit to deliver a class, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and local Agile and Scrum meetups. We have strong ties to Agile companies in the metro Detroit area.  We have successfully run this CSP-SM workshop before for a number of Advanced Certified ScrumMasters.

What is Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster (CSP-SM) training?

Certified Scrum Professionals challenge their teams to improve the way Scrum and Agile principles are applied. They have demonstrated experience, documented training, and proven knowledge in Scrum.

Our Certified Scrum Professional®-ScrumMaster (CSP®-SM) workshop is a two-day deep dive into the world of Scrum and the role of a professional ScrumMaster. The class provides a probe into Lean Thinking, visual facilitation techniques, remote teams, and more. We will examine the relationship of the ScrumMaster to the product owner, the team and the organization.

Are you ready to take your knowledge and skillset in your role as ScrumMaster to the next level? If so, it’s time to elevate your career further by earning the Certified Scrum Professional®- ScrumMaster (CSP®-SM) certification.

Who should attend this workshop?

ScrumMasters, Agile coaches, consultants, program and project managers, facilitators, and technical leaders will all benefit by joining us and building upon their CSM and A-CSM certification with the CSP-SM.


To be eligible for the CSP-SM certification you must satisfy the following criteria:

  • Be an existing A-CSM in good standing with the Scrum Alliance
  • Have at least 24+ months experience working as a ScrumMaster

This is an advanced class. Please come ready to participate, share your experiences, work hard, and have fun! There will be a pre-class homework assignment, which you must complete, so be sure to coordinate your schedule to allow time for this activity.

You will be required to attend the full workshop to earn the CSP-SM credential.  If you feel like you may miss more than 30 minutes of the workshop you should plan on attending a future CSP-SM instructor led session.


To attend the CSP-SM training participants must have knowledge about Scrum and Agile, gained from training like the Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Advanced ScrumMaster (A-CSM) workshops, agile experience, or other forms of education.

To obtain the CSP-SM from the Scrum Alliance you must:

• Hold an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) certification with Scrum Alliance.
• Attend a certified CSP-SM educational offering to gain advanced knowledge in implementing purpose and strategy, high level approaches for testing product assumptions and advanced techniques in Product Backlog management.
• Successfully complete all educator-designed components of an approved educational offering. This may include pre- or post-course work as deemed necessary by your approved educator to complete the learning objectives.
• You will be asked to accept the CSP-SM License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile.
• Validate at least 24 months of work experience specific to the role of ScrumMaster (from within the past five years).

To maintain your CSP-SM after obtaining it you must earn Scrum Education Units® (SEUs) and renewing your certification every two years.
