Welcome to Module 3 of the Introduction to the Scrum Master Profession course. In this Module: We begin with a comprehensive overview of what we covered in the first two modules. We summarize various roles in Scrum, Scrum Master skills and competencies, review the Scrum process and highlight the Scrum Master involvement. Next, our Subject Matter Experts (SME) discuss potential Scrum Master employment opportunities. They provide guidance and tips for anyone considering a Scrum Master position. Our final instructional video highlights the criteria for achieving three certifications: PMI-ACP, PMI-DASM, and the Scrum Alliance CSM. We also list two other popular credentials that are addressed in this course. Our SME team returns to share their thoughts on the Scrum Master environment. They share opportunities for Scrum Masters outside the IT environment and some helpful tips to improve your Scrum Master resume. A glossary of terms is provided to help you understand and recall key definitions used in the course. A final graded examination will allow you to determine your readiness level to challenge the certifications we shared in the course. A final course wrap-up will again feature our SME team. They will share advice on who should pursue a job as Scrum Master, challenges you will encounter, and examples of how to overcome those challenges.
