What’s the best scrum master certification?

There are four general factors that you need to consider: provider, recognition, format and cost.

Choose a provider with credible presence and substantial reach such as the number of their training partners or locations, and the number of professionals who hold their certifications.

SCRUMstudy is the largest certification accreditation body with 2,100+ partners worldwide. They have 750,000+ students from 7,500+ companies such as Apple, IBM and HP in 150+ countries. Certifies 5,000+ students per month which is more than any other certification body. Cost is between $450 and $895 USD.

Three general formats for delivery include classroom, virtual (instructor-led) and online (self-paced). Classroom-based certifications are more expensive. You also need to take time off to travel to take the class. Online format costs less and provides flexibility. Virtual format (e.g., live instructor online or hybrid) sits somewhere in the middle.

Prospective employers do not make a distinction how you earned your credential.

Online scrum master certification provides the best value in terms of cost, effort and flexibility.
