Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) professionals have a practical, working knowledge of Scrum that equips them to implement and work in a Scrum environment. The purpose of the exam is
to confirm the applicants have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply Scrum in the projects and to tailor Scrum in a particular scenario.

SMC™ professionals are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an environment conducive to completing the project successfully. The Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the project; clears impediments for the team; and, ensures that Scrum processes are being followed.

Successful candidates will be awarded the Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) certification after passing the certification exam.

This certification is appropriate for anyone who is interested in working as a Scrum Master or for someone who is already a Scrum master in their organization. Scrum Master is an
important role in any Scrum team and need not be a technology expert to be effective. Moreover,although Scrum is popular in the IT industry, it can be used effectively across different industries.
