Add to Calendar


Given the current pandemic, this course will be delivered virtually |


Program Description:

Get your Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification at a significant discount.  PMI Dallas has negotiated with a premier local Certified Scrum Trainer to offer chapter members access to the CSM course.  Given the current pandemic, this course will be delivered virtually. 

NOTE: This course must have at least 10 paid participants before August 6 in order to be presented and is limited to no more than 30 participants.

This course is divided into two parts – Participants MUST register and pre-pay for the course as part of Part 1 before being eligible to attend Part 2.  Registration will take place as part of Part 1 Only:

  1. Sign up and pay $625 (early bird $595) for the course and receive access to Part 1 - a 4 hour Lecture Video Series viewed in 7-12 minute segments - that must be viewed prior to CoB Aug 6 to be eligible to attend Part 2, the weekend live sessions, to be held August 8-9, 2020. The provider’s learning platform tracks the number of videos viewed and reports to the instructor your progress. Once all videos have been viewed, you will be eligible to proceed to Part 2, the live sessions.
  2. If you view all videos by August 6, 2020 you will be invited to the live weekend sessions. During the live sessions, the instructor will guide you through discussions and a series of exercises that will deepen your understanding of Agile, Scrum, estimation and roles outside the Scrum framework. 
  3. The general format for the live session:

Saturday August 8th and Sunday August 9th; start at 8:30 AM; end by 4 PM

15 minutes breaks at 10 AM and 2:30 PM

Lunch from 11:30 AM to 1 PM

PDU information:

You will earn 4 Technical PDUs upon completion of Part 1.

You will earn 10 Technical and 4 Leadership PDUs upon completion of Part 2.
