Course overview

The Certified Scrum Developer® course is aimed at software developers (programmers) who are building software in a Scrum environment. The goal is to expose students to the most important tools and techniques that need to be applied in order to build good software in the iterative and incremental fashion that Scrum requires. These ideas are central to the entire field of Agile software development. The CSD Learning objectives cover the critical skills in coding, testing, refactoring, continuous integration, and other related topics that are needed for successful team software development in the Scrum style. 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.
