Why get Recertified?
A SCRUMstudy™ certificate should be renewed within three calendar years of its issue date. As the Scrum/Agile field is maturing, it is important for practitioners to be abreast of current and latest innovations in the field. For example, the current version of the SBOK™ Guide includes details on Scaling Scrum for Large Projects and Scaling Scrum for the Enterprise. Sections on improving the Scrum Guidance Body and Planning in Scrum have also been updated. Maintaining a certificate enables a student to demonstrate his/her commitment to continuous learning. It also demonstrates the student’s knowledge of Scrum/Agile to employers, peers, and colleagues.
A student can renew his/her certificate in the following ways:
Students can purchase a Recertification exam or SCRUMstudy™ certification course from an Authorized Training Partner (A.T.P.) in their region to get discounts and additional Certification/Recertification options. Students also have the option to purchase directly from SCRUMstudy™.
