The following questions are about the Scrum Master exam price:

The following institutes and organizations offer Scrum Master certification:

    • Scrum Alliance
    • Scrum.org

    • EXIN
    • SCRUMStudy
    • International Scrum Institute

Scrum Alliance changed its certification strategy because they were criticized for how they were issuing certifications. Industry professionals believed that a no-test certification produced colleagues who do not take certifications or courses with enough seriousness. Therefore, the Scrum Alliance addressed these voices by introducing an “Assessment Factor” and by making it mandatory for aspirants to pass an online exam within 90 days of doing the course to receive the certification.

PSM I is the basic certification from Scrum.org and you can get certified in two ways:

    • Study the materials from Scrum.org and pay $150 to attempt the PSM I exam in the time limit of 60 minutes.
    • Take the PSM course for $350, which has a direct connection to two related certifications: PSM I and PSM II and the material covers both PSM I and PSM II tests.

you need to decide on the right option because it will affect the total amount of money you end up paying. The PSM II exam costs $500 and is more expensive than the PSM I exam. If you pay and complete the PSM course, you will receive a password to attempt the PSM I exam without paying anything extra and also be eligible to attempt the PSM II exam with a discounted fee of $300.
