Strengthen your technical skills in Agile software development — become a Certified Scrum Developer®

Course Overview

An immersive, intensive 3-day course providing hands-on training in the most powerful and popular Agile Engineering Practices (aka Scrum Developer Practices, Extreme Programming practices), and the synergy gained by combining them.

Practices include Test-Driven Development, Refactoring, Continuous Integration, Collective Code Ownership, Pair Programming, Acceptance-Test Driven Development, time-boxed experimental “spikes,” Energized Work, and Emergent Design and Architecture.

Today’s professional developer will appreciate experiencing these practices in a safe, fun, and mildly realistic environment.

Those who successfully complete this course may become a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Developer®. See the Scrum Alliance for full details on how to earn the CSD Credential.

Requirements for Scrum Developer certification

To earn a CSD, we require at least five days of formal training taught by a Scrum Alliance Registered Education Provider (REP®) and a Scrum Alliance Authorized Instructor.

There are currently two tracks to achieve CSD certification (detailed below). The courses for both tracks can be taken in any order. Once you complete a track, you will receive notification to accept your CSD license, and the CSD certification will be added to your profile. Your certification is valid for two years.

DESIGNED FOR:

Software developers, lead programmers, and architects. Participants will split into teams of 4-6 people who can read and understand the programming language selected by that team. Each participant will be working closely with others to craft real code.

LEVEL & LENGTH:

Level: Introductory to Experienced

Length: 3 days on-site or off-site

PRE-REQUISITES

  • Ability to read and understand the basics of one of the selected programming languages.
  • Familiarity with an Agile framework such as Scrum, XP, or Kanban.
  • In order to obtain Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Developer—and in addition to taking this course as the designated 3-day technical CSD course—you will also need to complete one of two tracks:
  1. Obtain your CSM from a Certified Scrum Trainer (2 day training). See our offerings.
  2. Take a Scrum Intro course (1 day) and a Technical Elective course (1 day).

CSD Tracks
Track 1

  • CSM® course (2 days)
  • CSD technical course, including coding (3 days)

Track 2

  • Intro to Scrum CSD course (1 day)
  • CSD technical course, including coding (3 days)
  • CSD technical elective course (1 day)

During your CSD courses, you must demonstrate an understanding of Scrum and Agile engineering practices by passing a CSD assessment provided by the REP/instructor. The assessment may be an exam administered by the instructor to test your knowledge, or it may be an active, classroom-based assessment. When a REP/instructor uploads a student’s information into our system, they are recommending the student for certification.
