Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® Training

The Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® course is designed for those who already have their Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM® ) credential and are looking to take the next step. By building upon the core Scrum framework, this course helps you move toward a professional and practitioner ScrumMaster® level, allowing you to realize more of your (and your team’s) untapped potential. The training course is a highly interactive learning experience that will explore best practices, dig into real-life problems and offer practical techniques to take away and apply immediately.

Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll need to accept the license agreement through the Scrum Alliance® to earn your certification. All Creighton A-CSMSM courses are taught by educators approved by the Scrum Alliance®. Taking an A-CSMSM course, meeting the 7 learning objectives and accepting the license agreement designates you as an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster®.


This course is an elective within the Graduate Certificate in Project Management, and it’s worth 1.5 credits. The course can be taken independently as a professional development course or as part of the certificate program. Please note that students are limited to earning a maximum of nine graduate credits before applying for admission into a degree or certificate program. If you are below the nine-credit limit and are not seeking a certificate or degree, you’re free to take this course without applying to the graduate school.

Creighton University will issue a 1098-T by January 31 for all learners enrolled in courses for credit. As part of that process, you may be asked to provide your Social Security number.
