Hi all! I currently work as a Project Specialist and a Scrum Master for an agile pod. I want to get an official SM certification. We don’t follow SAFe yet but we are moving towards that methodology, so we have the SAFe Scrum Master Certification (SSM) available through work (which I am signed up to complete). My question is from the resume perspective does the SSM cert have the same significance as CSM?
Thanks in advance for any input!
