Scrum.org Announces No-Cost Second Attempt for Scrum Certifications

Scrum.org recently announced an exciting update: anyone attending a Professional Scrum course will get a no-cost second chance when attempting the corresponding certification assessment for each course. This second chance will only be given if the course attendee takes the assessment within 14 days of attending a course and does not pass. If you are exploring getting a Scrum certification such as the Professional Scrum Master certification or Professional Scrum Product Owner certification, this is a great time to sign up for a course.

Each class includes a free attempt at the corresponding certification assessment. In your Professional Scrum class, you will learn the importance of inspection, adaptation, and fast feedback cycles. To reinforce those concepts, if you take a Scrum.org class and attempt the certification assessment within 14 days and do not score at least 85%, you will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.

This change allows students to quickly inspect their knowledge level after attending a course and to determine what, if any, areas they need to improve. This new assessment retake policy is effective for anyone attending a course after September 12, 2017 and applies to all Professional Scrum courses with a corresponding assessment:

Attending a Professional Scrum course was already the best way to prepare for a Scrum certification through Scrum.org, and this change just makes it better.
