The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was launched on 2008 June 11 on a mission to study the universe at high energies. The onboard Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) trigger system for detecting GRBs was first enabled on 2008 July 12. In this paper, we provide a catalog of GRBs that triggered the GBM during its first two years of operation. During this time the instrument burst detection algorithms were triggered 908 times: 492 of these are classified as GRBs, 79 as terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs), 170 as soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs), 31 as solar flares, 61 as charged particles, and 75 as others (galactic sources, accidental statistical fluctuations, or too weak to classify). Of the 491 GRBs (in one case the same GRB triggered GBM twice), 18 were detected by the LAT with high confidence above 100MeV (A. Abdo et al. 2012ApJ...744..146A).
