Strengthen your technical skills in agile product development with this Certified Scrum Developer® training course. Certified Scrum Developers (CSD®) have demonstrated — through training that ensures they have a working understanding of Scrum and agile principles and have learned specialised agile engineering skills. This Certified Scrum Developer® course is designed for product developers who are working in a Scrum environment. The goal is to expose students to the most important tools and techniques needed to build good products in the iterative and incremental fashion that Scrum requires. These ideas are central to the entire field of agile product development.
This course is beneficial for current and aspiring Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and members of software development teams who want to work successfully with or as part of a Scrum team creating value-added products. The course is also beneficial as a team training exercise to ensure all members are aligned towards creating products that add value to the customers.
To earn a CSD®, you are required to attend at least two days of formal training taught by a Scrum Alliance-approved CSD Educator. During your CSD® course, you must demonstrate an understanding of Scrum and agile development practises by passing a CSD® assessment provided by your educator. The assessment may be an exam administered by the educator to test your knowledge, or it may be an active, classroom-based assessment. When a CSD educator uploads a student’s information into our system, they are recommending the student for certification. Once you complete the course, you will receive a notification to accept your CSD® licence, and the CSD® certification will be added to your Scrum Alliance membership profile. Your certification is valid for two years. You can maintain your CSD® certification by earning Scrum Education Units® (SEUs) and renewing your certification every two years.
