The certification of the knowledge about the "Scrum" management model is issued by private membership or commercial organizations, such as Scrum Manager Scrum.org, Scrum Alliance, ScrumStudy, among others.
Each certification responds to its own evaluation criteria, and they are not official diplomas of formal education systems, although the names that some organizations give to their certificates might cause confusion and offer the false appearance of official diplomas: degree, master, PhD, etc.
The certification commonly known as "Scrum Master" credits the understanding of the knowledge taught in a 16-hour course, either by attending the course or through online self-training.
Scrum Manager's certification, at its Technician level, equals and involves the same knowledge as the well-known "Scrum Master", avoiding the "Master" denomination since it can be misleading. Scrum Manager also offers two certification levels above Technician: Expert level and Authority level. (further information)
