As a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), you’ve been introduced to Scrum values, practices, and applications. You now understand how to provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers.
Becoming Agile is a lifelong journey. Incorporating Scrum values and Agile principles into your world of work takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement.
To further enhance your knowledge and skills, the next step is achieving an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® (A-CSM®) certification from Scrum Alliance®. 3Back’s advanced offering is ideal for a Certified ScrumMaster who has one or more years of work experience in that role.
Through the A-CSM course you will learn how to:
- Facilitate Dialogue
- Respond Confidently
- Adopt Scrum
- Remove Impediments
- Explain Scrum's Values
- Increase Engagement
- Extend Scrum's Values
- Scale Scrum
- Leverage Learning
Here's what we do:
- The A-CSM is a very intense course, and our goal is to maximize our student outcomes in the 16 hours we have together.
- 12 of those 16 hours are directed group learning, where you will be working with StudyBuddies doing reading, exercises, discussions, and so on. We guide you through 13 learning modules with great materials, discussions, and exercises. All of the Learning Objectives will be verified in 12 Contact hours while you are working with StudyBuddies. We facilitate this for you by helping you acquire StudyBuddies, by verifying you've completed each module before moving to the next one, and by having our admin available to you for questions.
- 4 of these 16 hours are Office Hours, where the Trainer does Coaching, Mentoring and Q&A based on the Students' questions. These questions can be about anything that is agile and scrum, and could even be about the materials you are working on. However, in practice, the vast majority of this time is spent talking about work problems or misperceptions about agile and scrum.
We believe, and our reviews validate, that this structure provides a near-optimal learning experience for our Students.
Scrum Master training is 100% online and hosted on a learning management platform. There are no required software applications or additional training materials needed.

What are the prerequisites for the A-CSM course?
You need 12 months of professional experience as a Scrum Master during the last five years and a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification.
What is On-Demand?
On-Demand is a blended approach of both instructor-led and independent, self-paced learning. As a learner, you can find your own rhythm and you choose how fast you go. You have up to 3 months to complete the course from the purchase date (see our policy page for details).
The typical Module includes 20-60 minutes of reading (depending on your reading speed), and a multiple-choice quiz. After you complete these, you need to work with 1-2 StudyBuddies to discuss the module/quiz and do one or more scenario-based exercises. Each module will take about 1-3 hours of your time, and will require you to work with StudyBuddies (either someone in the course or outside of the course).
Is there a test after the class?
No, unlike the CSM course, there is no test after the A-CSM course.
What are the requirements to finish my On-Demand A-CSM certification?
Complete 13 Self-Paced Modules with one or more StudyBuddies. Attend 4 One-Hour Open Discussion with the trainers.
How long does it take to finish the course?
You have up to 3 months to complete the course. The average completion time is 2-4 weeks.
Fastest On-Demand: A fast pace would be two weeks for completion. You need to attend four Open Discussion Hours, and we are each planning to have two available per week.
Quick On-Demand: If you want to be quick, it makes sense to do it in a month. Do 3-4 modules a week, and attend an Open Discussion Hour each week.
Minimum On-Demand: You have three months from the purchase date to complete your course.
What is required for the A-CSM certification renewal in 2 years?
30 SEUs need to be completed in 2 years time and payment fee of $175 to the Scrum Alliance must be made, before the A-CSM license can be renewed. See the links for more information on Claiming SEUs and you can use 3Back Resources to read our publications and receive SEUs under Category E.
Can I get PDUs and SEUs for this class? How many?
Yes, you will receive 14 Category B PDUs upon completion of the course. As a Registered Education Provider for the Scrum Alliance, our A-CSM course is worth 14 SEUs as well.
I completed the A-CSM course, but my certification is not showing up on my Scrum Alliance Account. Why?
You need to make sure you update your Scrum Alliance profile with your work experience and have a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification. In addition to needing a CSM certification, you need at least 12 months of professional experience as a Scrum Master during the last five years.
Learn online with real-time Scrum activities and simulations.
