Certified Scrum Trainer’s are few and far between. As an ambassador of Scrum, CST’s must show a strong understanding of the Scrum framework, have experience of implementing and coaching others on Scrum, and be open to continuous learning. The certification process involves an extensive application, training process and strict peer review all to ensure only the very best become a CST.
