About Scrum certifications
ABOUT SCRUM CERTIFICATIONS
The certification of the knowledge about scrum and agile management model is issued by private membership or commercial organizations, such as Scrum Manager Scrum.org, Scrum Alliance, ScrumStudy, among others.
Each certification responds to its own evaluation criteria, and they are not official diplomas of formal education systems, although the names that some organizations give to their certificates might cause confusion and offer the false appearance of official diplomas: degree, master, PhD, etc.
The certification commonly known as "Scrum Master" accredits the understanding of the knowledge that is taught in a course of 16 teaching hours, either by attending the course or through online training.
The Scrum Manager core course certification covers professional knowledge for the role of "Scrum Master". Scrum Manager also develops a scale for the certification of knowledge to expand or specialize in agile management. (further information)
What does Scrum Manager certify?

The Scrum Manager® designation is a registered trademark with international intellectual and industrial property registrations: EU 006113691 / ES 2.702.753 / ES 3.060.169 / AR 2.411.15

Do the certifications of Scrum Manager, Scrum Alliance, Scrum.org, or any other, comply with any standard?
Scrum certifications do not comply with any specific international standard, such a standard only exists as a de facto reality, framed by the best agile management practices implemented and shared by the professional community.
Scrum Manager's certification was the first scrum certification that was launched (in 2007) in order to credit the knowledge of scrum based on an exam, as an alternative of what was simply the attendance certificate to the Scrum Master course, which was misleadingly understood as a certification of professional knowledge. The appearance of Sgrum Manager's certification was a turning point, and since then scrum certifications started including an exam in order to get them.
Apart from Scrum Manager's certification, and the earlier one of the Scrum Alliance, other organizations have appeared that also train in scrum knowledge and certify it: scrum-institute.org, scrum.org, scrummanagementparters.org, scaledagileacademy.com, Agile Certification Institute, etc. Scrum Manager's certification is the most widespread in the Hispano-American professional community.
