To add to Hubert's response...
There are many trainers with quite a variation in styles.
If you have the time and opportunity, I'd recommend you talk to people
who are like you in style and have attended the Agile/Scrum events so
they can offer first-hand opinions on the various trainers.
Personally, I prefer people who understand the human dynamics that
explain why the recommneded principles and practices work. I also
look for those who are familiar with the principles of Lean ala the
Poppendiecks and XP best practices for engineering discipline.
You can learn more about people by reading their postings in various
Yahoo groups including this one, AgileManagement,
AgileProjectManagem ent and LeanDevelopment. Mishkin Berteig has his
Agile Advice site and there are others.
I realize that this may take some time, but a quick scan may be
helpful. I find some respondents are clear thinking and make an
effort to be helpful. Others are fuzzy thinking and some offer only
small remarks with little generosity of helpfulness.
Jeff Sutherland I find uniquely insightful if you are interested in
the most sophisticated practical evolution of Scrum with a historical
and accademic insight as well. He is the co-founder of Scrum with Ken
Schwaber. He has the most noteworthy track record for hands-on
leadership of companies to super productivity. But this may not be a
fit for your needs.
Mike Cohn, who Hubert recommended, has done the most to publish
detailed practices in his two book that you probably are familiar
with. A friend once quiped, "Ken is the Tao of Scrum and Mike is the
How of Scrum". This is not to say that there are not a bunch of good
trainers who present both including Hubert.
Another dimension is what happens after the certification class. Do
you want to have an on-site coach to coach a team through habit change
or are you looking for just an introductory course with no particular
ongoing support? Are you already working with knowledgeable people
who can provide you with local support as you apply Scrum?
You can see my bias in this answer. You deserve to choose who fits
