40 Scrum Education Credits (SEUs) need to be earned every two years in order to renew the CSP certification. There is also a $250 Renewal Fee.


ASPE offers multiple courses that award SEUs. However, for those classes to award SEUs they must be taught by a Scrum Alliance certified trainer. If you are not sure whether an ASPE course or instructor qualifies you for SEUs, or how many SEUs a class is worth, contact your training advisor.


This will also renew any CSM, CSPO, CSD, A-CSM, or A-CSM you may have.
