Training Materials

As an authorized or official center of Scrum Manager, the center license allows for commercial use, editing, and customization of training materials.

If you are not an authorized or official center, a license is required to use the materials for commercial purposes, editing, and customization. The license is available at: professional area/license.

At Scrum Manager, we value continuous and collaborative learning, which is why the available training resources and materials are classified into two versions based on their trajectory and implementation.

Version trajectory information

The terms "alpha" and "beta" in the version number indicate the following:

Version Definition
Alpha An initial proposal that may be subject to changes and improvements.
Beta The version incorporates adjustments based on the experiences and suggestions of the teachers who use it. However, further changes may still be made before reaching the "consolidated" state.


Once a version has passed the beta stage, it is considered stable, but it is still iterable and is still open to reviews and feedback.

We appreciate your comments and suggestions for improving and perfecting the educational support activities.

The certification of the knowledge about scrum and agile management model is issued by private membership or commercial organizations, such as Scrum Manager, 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" accredits the understanding of the knowledge that is taught in a course of 16 teaching hours, either by attending the course or through online training.

The Scrum Manager core course certification covers professional knowledge for the role of "Scrum Master". Scrum Manager also develops a scale for the certification of knowledge to expand or specialize in agile management (further information).

Scrum certifications do not comply with any specific international standard, such a standard only exists as a de facto reality, framed by the best agile management practices implemented and shared by the professional community.

Scrum Manager's certification was the first scrum certification that was launched (in 2007) in order to credit the knowledge of scrum based on an exam, as an alternative of what was simply the attendance certificate to the Scrum Master course, which was misleadingly understood as a certification of professional knowledge. The appearance of Sgrum Manager's certification was a turning point, and since then scrum certifications started including an exam in order to get them.

Apart from Scrum Manager's certification, and the earlier one of the Scrum Alliance, other organizations have appeared that also train in scrum knowledge and certify it:

Scrum Manager's certification is the most widespread in the Hispano-American professional community.

Scrum Level evaluation information

We believe that agility is a work environment, a set of principles that enhance professional excellence and personal fulfillment. Our goal is to share this vision.

Scrum Manager shares an open knowledge model, developed by managers, for managers with a flexible agile vision, based on values and principles. Scrum Manager shows the agility that is not learned by following agile frameworks or procedural guidelines, but by breaking them.

Scrum Manager offers since 2006 the first Scrum certification that requires an exam.
