This morning I took the CSP Exam, to be come a “Certified Scrum Professional”. I usually don’t mind much about certifications, not for myself, not for the people I hire or work with, but that doesn’t seem to be the case of a lot of others.
Off course I already considered myself a Scrum Professional, but it was time to make it official, and this morning I passed! Now the CSP badge appears on my Scrum Alliance Profile.
You must satisfy three eligibility criteria to apply for the CSP credential:
- be a current holder of the CSM, CSPO, or CSD credential;
- have a minimum of 2000 hours of Scrum-related work in the past two years;
- maintain a current Scrum Alliance membership.
When you want to apply, you first need to apply for this on the Scrum Alliance website, you can do this from your dashboard. When your eligibility has been confirmed, you should pay a registration fee of $300 after which you will receive an invitation from the examination institute Castle Worldwide to schedule the location, date, and time for the required CSP exam. Castle Worldwide, does as the name suggest provide examination centers all over the globe, and I took mine in Veenendaal in the Netherlands.
