How much does the Scrum certification cost?

I would like to apply for a Scrum certification from Scrum Alliance - I wonder how much this certification costs and if they also have a pricing for members and non-members.

Also, is that certification the only Scrum certification out there? Or are there others?

Technically it's free - but realistically, it's not. Here's why:

The test, in and for itself, is free - at least this is what scrumalliance claims (however if you fail the test more than two times than any subsequent tests towards the same certification will cost you $25 each).

However, the test is not really free, here's why:

- You will need to take a course about Scrum with scrumalliance (scrumalliance do not mention that you have to take the Scrum course with them, but I assume that this is the rule)

- That course is a two day course that costs money

- You take the Scrum test at the end of the course

There are probably other Scrum certifications out there, but the one offered by scrumalliance is the most recognized.
