  2. Hi Naveen,
    I have completed Certified Scrum Master 3 months back which fetched me 16 SEUs.I am doing SAFE Agilist next week to earn another 16 SEU's.Now i am left with another 38 SEU's before i apply from my CSP.I am located in Delhi.Can you share activities/webinars that i can do in and around Delhi in next 2 months to earn these 38 SEU's.

    1. Unfortunately this article is missing some other criteria that needs to be adhered to before gaining CSP certification. The main thing is the years experience in a scrum team. If you can demonstrate that and still reach 70 seu's you should be fine. The process is changing in the new year for the CSP cert.

    2. You can claim 15 SEUs by self-study under category "E" but for remaining you need to find out meetup group. Agile 30 keeps organizing one day workshop so you can attend. One is coming on 2nd December -

      One day workshop equals 8 SEUs in category A

    3. Dear Anonymous, You can use your real name as well. Unfortunately this blog is not about CSP process so no need to get disappointment. This blog is only for how to earn SEUs for Free. I do have blog on CSP process so please check and leave your comment there. Thank you :)

  3. Hello Naveem
    In order to obtain SEU's for completing CSM or CSPO training, do I need to obtain training from a designated CST or CSP? Or, can I complete courses offered by non-CST professionals (and have the training contribute to SEU requirements)?
