How to become a SCRUMstudy Certified Trainer (SCT®)?

SCRUM trainings for several certification exams (including SMC®, SPOC®, SAMC and ESMC) should preferably be conducted in classrooms or through virtual instructor led sessions. It is important for every SCRUMstudy faculty to be an expert in the particular SCRUMstudy certification he or she is teaching, and be very familiar with the concepts in the SBOK® Guide. It is also important for the faculty to be a good teacher and have adequate soft-skills to handle different situations in a class, and consistently deliver very high quality trainings.

Process for becoming an accredited SCRUMstudy Certified Trainer (SCT®):

  1. Trainers need to have at least 2 years of relevant work experience and should be willing to share their experiences in the classes they teach.
  2. They need to successfully pass any three SCRUMstudy certification exams (out of SDC®, SMC®, SAMC, and SPOC®), including the certification course that they wish to teach.
  3. They need to be aware of the training resources available in SCRUMstudy A.T.P. site (including videos, handbooks, recording of past training sessions etc). SCRUMstudy will provide substantial training resources which A.T.P.s and Trainers can customize and use for their classes - the training resources will focus more on SCRUM concepts rather than on how to pass SCRUMstudy certification exams. Other than the training resources available in SCRUMstudy, additional custom content may need to be developed by individual A.T.P.s or Trainers.
  4. All Trainers should be associated with a SCRUMstudy A.T.P.

Once trainers complete the above requirements, they need to apply to SCRUMstudy to become an accredited trainer (mentioning the details of the A.T.P. with whom they are associated). Accredited Trainers will be certified as "SCRUMstudy Certified Trainers (SCT®s)" - and they will be awarded an accreditation certificate making them eligible to train students for SCRUMstudy certifications. They should train only for the A.T.P.s with whom they have got associated.

To ensure a high-quality learning experience for all our students, trainers need to consistently get high rankings in student feedback forms. SCRUMstudy will regularly ask for feedback from students who attend classes conducted by SCRUMstudy A.T.P.s Faculty who receive unfavorable feedback must work on improving their course delivery, or their accreditation as SCT®s may be terminated. SCRUMstudy reserves its right to terminate any SCT® from continuing training for SCRUMstudy classes because of poor feedback or for other reasons.
