Why Beyond20

How We Teach

People learn differently, so we use a variety of methods to teach concepts throughout the course. In addition to exam preparation and practice quizzes, you'll engage in round-table discussions, group exercises, and games designed to give practical context to the concepts. We take this approach not only because it's more interesting and fun than simply memorizing vocabulary, but because it works.

All of our trainers are full-time Beyond20 staff

No temporary workers or subcontractors here. Our trainers are working consultants who implement best practice processes and tools when they're not in the classroom. You might say we practice what we preach. It's a great system, when you think about it - we're better consultants because we know these concepts inside and out, and we're better trainers because we get to put the theory into practice in the real world.

We don't just teach to the exam (though we certainly do that), we also give you practical and personalized tools you can take back to work.

We're a Registered Education Provider with PMI, so if you're PMP Certified, the course will earn you PDUs!

Industry-Leading Course Materials

All of our courseware is reviewed multiple times a year to ensure it's up to date, in line with best practice standards, and effective! We incorporate feedback from students to constantly improve our course books, in-class activities, and (sorry) homework. The goal is to provide you with the tools to not only get you through class and pass the exam, but also to have a reliable reference when you get back to the office.

All of our instructors are experienced practitioners with real world ITIL implementation expertise. (Real experience, too. Like, former-CIO-level experience.)

We're a US-based organization with offices in DC, Phoenix, and San Diego.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

There are more than 300,000 people who hold the CSM credential but only a few hundred with the PMI-ACP credential, making CSM more widely recognized by employers/agencies. CSM is our most popular class. It’s great, too – very interactive.

Some familiarity with Agile, Scrum, or software development is helpful but not required.

The Certified ScrumMaster course is 2 days in length.

Individuals who hold the PMP Certification will receive 16 PDUs through the course.

The course includes a workbook (provided on the first day of class) and handouts. An exam voucher is also included.

The exam comprises 35 multiple-choice questions and you must get at least 24 correct. Each question is multiple choice, usually with four possible answers.

You will be able to use any materials, handouts, and/or notes taken during the class for the exam.

We guarantee you’ll pass and will pay for any exam retakes as long as you were present and engaged for the entirety of class.

There is no re-certification exam required. Your CSM certification must be renewed every two years through the Scrum Alliance.
