Certified Scrum Developer® Training

Agile software development requires a unique approach to the actual writing of code. While there are no “silver bullets,” certain practices are much better at controlling quality, while retaining the flexibility and maintainability required of Agile’s incremental product development approach.

Join us for 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, Behavior Driven Development, time-boxed experimental “spikes,” Energized Work, and Emergent Design and Architecture.

What you get

  • 3 Day CSD In-person course Includes a light breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack provided on both days of training
  • Upon completing this course and 2 additional days of ScrumAlliance recognized training, students will receive their CSD Certification
  • 2 Year Membership to Scrum Alliance

What you learn

Students will learn the foundations of Scrum and the scope of the Certified Scrum Developer’s role, as well as how to control quality, while retaining the flexibility and maintainability of Agile's incremental approach to product development.

What you earn

To earn a CSD, ScrumAlliance requires at least five days of formal training taught by a Scrum Alliance Registered Education Provider (REP®) and a Scrum Alliance-approved CSD instructor. This class completes 3 days of that requirement as well as the CSD instructor requirement. The remaining two days of instruction can be fulfilled by a CSM course.
