Course Tutor(s)

Alan O'Callaghan

Certified Scrum Trainer (CST)

Alan is an experienced Lean-Agile transformation consultant, a Certified Scrum Trainer and Agile coach who has worked with large corporations and start-ups alike, helping them to gain fluency in Agile product development. As a licensed practitioner of the Agile Fluency (TM) diagnostic tools, he is qualified to work with managers to identify their organisation's business goals, and by working with their Agile teams, identify what investments need to be made to help the teams achieve the fluency needed to achieve those goals. Drawing on his own extensive experience (nearly 20 years) in the Product Owner and Scrum Master roles, Alan is also able to provide coaching and mentoring support to Agile teams. Like many in the Lean-Agile community Alan's roots are in object-oriented programming, software and systems architecture and the Patterns Movement. It was through an active interest in, and participation in the research of, Jim Coplien's organisational patterns that he first came across Scrum (as a pattern language) at the OOPSLA convention in 1998, after which Scrum gradually took over more and more of his professional life. Described as having a "laid back charm" he nevertheless generates enthusiasm and energy in the Agile teams he works with. Alan is an active member of the Scrum Patterns Group (ScrumPLoP),

Pre-requisites

There are no prerequisites for the course. However students are expected to complete the pre-course reading prior to attending. 

Course Preparation

You should allow some time prior to the course to familiarise yourself with key Scrum terms and definitions, as described in the Scrum GuideAn online, as well as downloadable pdf version of the Scrum Guide, is available as pre-reading.

You should be aware that this is a Certified Course and 8 hours of training per day MUST be attended. This means you must be present at all times during the daily start/end times detailed above; your day will however include 1.5 hours break. You must attend this time to be eligible for certification and the trainer reserves the right not to register you with the Scrum Alliance if you do not attend the training for the required hours. 

Certifying Bodies & Exams

After attending a two-day Certified ScrumMaster course, you are eligible for the final step in becoming a ScrumMaster® (CSM), completing the online Scrum Alliance CSM exam.

You will not take the test during the two-day course. Instead, a link will be sent to you the day after the course allowing you to take the test in your own time. You must answer 37 of the 50 multiple choice questions correctly to pass. The test has a time limit of 60 minutes. You may skip, go back, and bookmark questions to review later. If you have any unanswered questions, you’ll see a warning message when you click “submit.” Once you submit your answers, your test results will immediately appear on your screen.

Our Certified Scrum Trainers recommend you plan on taking your exam as soon as you can after completing the two-day classroom training. You have 60 minutes to complete the CSM exam, but you don't need to finish the test in one sitting. You can stop and restart as many times as needed. You can also skip, go back, and bookmark questions for later review. Review your bookmarked questions before submitting your test for scoring. When you click “submit” at the end, a warning message will alert you of any unanswered questions.

If you do not pass the CSM exam, you will be shown the questions you missed, but not told the right answer. You will be expected to research the right answer. If you don't pass the test, you can take it a second time at no cost. The Scrum Alliance charges a small fee ($25) for each attempt thereafter.

Please note as the Scrum Alliance requires you to attend and complete two-days (16-hours) of classroom based training in-person, if you are not present at training for the required hours on both days our Certified Scrum Trainer reserve the right to not register you with the Scrum Alliance for certification.
