Certified Scrum Professional – Achievement Unlocked!

Scrum Alliance CSP logoAs of this afternoon, I am a CSP (Certified Scrum Professional) with the Scrum Alliance!

The CSP is a certification demonstrating a commitment to my continuing education in Agile and Scrum, and to the profession. The CSP requires a few years of experience as  a scrum team member, as well as 70 hours of continuing education, which might include independent study, Scrum Alliance training and conferences, non-Scrum Alliance trainings, and scrum-related volunteer work. My blog posts here, events, and Scrum Alliance articles also contributed to the certification. In addition, my coursework for the CSM and attendance at the Global Scrum Gathering in San Diego last month gave me both necessary education and SEU (Scrum Educational Units) for the certification.

I’ve been working towards my CSP since getting my CSM last year, and I am very proud of this accomplishment.
