Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) Distance Learning

Follow the Scrum Alliance's "Path To CSP" program with this Advanced Certified Scrum Master (A-CSM) distance learning class that will take your knowledge of Scrum and the ScrumMaster role to the next level.

This distance learning approach still counts as step 2 on the Path to CSP program and once you successfully complete this class, you will be able to demonstrate that you can work with and facilitate dialogue within teams. You will learn how to become a truly effective coach for your team, your product owner and your organisation.

Please note: this course is NOT a classroom based experience. Research and reflection based modules will be completed in your own time at your own pace with coaching support from myself.


I am able to take a limited number of people through this distance learning A-CSM option at any one time so if the course is showing as “sold out” then please get in touch to be placed on the waiting list. The dates showing here are not indicative of when you can start. Once you sign up we will agree a start date for you.


I will help you take your Scrum Mastery skills from good to great as you learn what it takes to create a self-organising team, embed Scrum within your organisation and become a better ScrumMaster.


The course 

By building upon the core Scrum framework, I will help you move towards a professional and practitioner ScrumMaster level, allowing you to realise more of the untapped potential of you and your team. I have drawn on all of my experience coaching teams and mentoring ScrumMasters to create a learning experience that promises to share best practice, explore real life problems, and practical techniques to apply immediately.




The modules include

  • From Good to Great Scrum Mastery
  • Servant Leadership and Coaching
  • Team Facilitation
  • Meeting Facilitation
  • Change Agency
  • PLUS the distance learning options encourages participants to tailor the agenda to meet their needs.

This Distance-Learning option is a more personalised, deeper and stickier learning experience than my A-CSM two-day public class and involves a number of modules for a self-directed style approach, plus 1-2-1 coaching sessions with me.

  • Each module contains some theory and resources in a mix of formats (slides, videos, papers, books) and some questions to answer.
  • You are expected to reflect on your role, skills and thought processes while also capturing evidence of applying the theory at work in a journal.
  • Once you have successfully completed the module, the appropriate A-CSM learning objectives would be marked as “complete” and we could start the next module.
  • There will be coaching calls to discuss modules and progress throughout the programme.

The delegate

This A-CSM distance learning course is aimed at people already experienced with Scrum and the ScrumMaster role. To be eligible for the A-CSM accreditation, you must have undertaken CSM training and have a CSM certification.

The distance-learning A-CSM puts more emphasis on you to do the work in your own time and, depending on your attitude and aptitude, we believe this could take anywhere from 3-18 months to complete but should be comfortably achievable within 6 months if enough focus is applied.

After successfully completing this programme you will be awarded the A-CSM accreditation by the Scrum Alliance.
