A-CSM Certification Course – This Path to CSP Scrum Alliance Advanced Certified Scrum Master Certification course. The course is designed for learners who enjoy deeper learning than can be received in a 3 day class and like to investigate topics at their own pace and depth. The lessons meet the A-CSM Learning Objectives and are comprised of the following types of activities: Online readings of blog posts and viewing videos related to the subject matter of the learning objectives. Experiential assignments where you practice the learning in your own environment. Essays describing learnings. Some videos are recorded by Cherie Silas but others are from various internet resources by people in the Agile Community who speak well to the topic. All lessons are graded by Cherie Silas and feedback given. If challenges to learning occur, Cherie helps with feedback and with personal interactions to review the subject matter and support your learning and application of the materials as needed.

The assignments in this course will take 2-3 months to complete if the student works at a relatively steady pace and completes a few assignments each week. The course also includes four two hour group mentoring sessions by Cherie Silas where we focus on Agile and Professional Coaching topics an Advanced Scrum Master should know and build into their toolkit. These group mentoring sessions help build a community of peers to learn and grow with over time. This course is not for the faint of heart, nor is it a quick and easy certification route. The price is lower than most A-CSM courses because of the self paced, self directed learning method but the expectations on learning are higher than in a 3-day class.
