Hi Saket/Seema,
I am in SanJose,California, I am your paid member and preparing for PMP exam, I am in IT Industry - since 11 years

I have a couple of queries related to CSM & PMP, As per IT industry standard now clients prefer projects to be complated in Agile, Since I am in IT and already worked on 6-7 Agile projects, Should I first finish CSM ?

I am in California and can not attend training happening in India, Is it possible for me to do online trainings and get my points which can be used for CSM certification ?

please respond ASAP so i can start on this,

Thanking you

Best Regards

Nitu, for CSM attending two days of classroom session, is mandatory. The online option is not available for this certificate. You can think of PSM-1, which is the Professional Scrum Master certificate from Scrum.ORG. It has good value in US market.

Here are the differences between CSM and PSM-1:

PSM-1 doesn't mandate to attend any class. For PSM-1 you are not required to take any particular course. If you are confident to pass the exam, you can directly purchase the PSM-1 exam without taking any specific course.

CSM examination is easy, whereas PSM-1 is not easy to pass as questions are tricky and the passing score is 85%. If you are not conceptually aware for the Scrum Framework, I highly recommend taking a course before appearing in the exam.

Let me know your interest in doing PSM-1, I will support you.

I also advise referring following blog: https://www.izenbridge.com/blog/still-c ... to-choose/
