Hi Jeanne and Joe,

I am pondering over getting a scrum master certification as we use scrum in our projects org wide. However, I can find at least 3 similar such certifications from scrum org, scrum allliance and scrumstudy? which one is the best and on what parameters to evaluate these courses? Advice please.

Sandra,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

The Scrum Alliance one is the actual certification. I found the Scrum.org open assessment to be a good learning tool. ScrumStudy looks they are one (of many) training providers that prepare you to take the Scrum Alliance certification.

What is the advantage of that exam vs the official one?

Rahul,

ScrumStudy is a company - a subsidiary of VMEdu, just like PMStudy is.

I wrote a long, detailed account of how it appears VMEdu is simply trying to capitalize on the popularity of Scrum with yet another certification that borders, if not violates, trademark.

Did you check out the Scrum Body of Knowledge (SBOK - 340 pages) from Scrumstudy? Scrumstudy offers it for free to all users to download. And this is by far the best resource for Scrum that I have read. http://www.scrumstudy.com/SBOKGuide-vs-otherScrumBooks.asp (link is external)

Also, Scrumstudy provides several free resources including great high quality videos, free case studies and phone apps; it also gives provides a free "Introduction to Scrum" course on its website. Link to some of their great videos: http://www.scrumstudy.com/scrum-free-videos.asp (link is external)

Scrumstudy has the biggest partner network of ATPs to deliver trainings (120 ATPs) http://www.scrumstudy.com/list-of-atp.asp (link is external) ; this is a bigger partner network to deliver Scrum trainings as compared with any other Scrum Training provider.

Moreover, students from leading Fortune 500 companies have taken the trainings from Scrumstudy including Apple, IBM, HP, Lockheed Martin, BoA, Amex and several other Fortune 500 companies. http://www.scrumstudy.com/corporate-testimonials.asp (link is external)

Please check this out. Anyways, the SBOK is a free download

EOD, students can decide from which company they want to do their Scrum Training and Scrum Certification.
