The reason for the certification to be structured in this way is to ensure individual interaction.
The certification methodology lays emphasis on the participants interacting with the certified scrum trainer. Part of the reason is to ensure that when a certified Scrum trainer guides the participants, the scrum knowledge is passed on in a consistent way. In addition, such interactions go beyond Scrum frameworks and stimulates discussions on wider topics related to Scrum and experience sharing, all of which is valuable. This is one of the key reasons why attending a classroom session is mandated for obtaining CSM certificate.
