Scrum Certification Bodies
There are three organizations that issue Scrum certifications, and each certifies / qualifies instructors to prepare candidates for their particular certification exams. They are Scrum.org, Scrum Alliance, and SCRUMStudy. Each has its own designation for approved instructors / trainers. For example, CST is the designation from Scrum Alliance. All three organizations base their exams on the same basic Scrum principles and concepts, and thus are all comparable, and show that those holding the certifications (Scrum Master, Product Owner, etc.) have met basically the same requirements for knowledge and competency relative to Scrum. So, certifications from all three organizations are valid and they are all generally accepted as validating the knowledge and understanding of Scrum principles at a certain level.
