Certified Scrum Developer - 5 days

Learn to do the things right

Course overview

Certified Scrum Developers have demonstrated — through a combination of formal training and a technical skills assessment — that they have a working understanding of Scrum principles, and have learned specialized Agile engineering skills.

The Certified Scrum Developer course is designed for software developers (programmers) who are building software in a Scrum environment. The goal is to expose students to the most important tools and techniques needed 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.

A successful Scrum Developer is committed to continuous improvement. The coursework and dedication needed to achieve a CSD sharpen the participant’s skills to help to become a better practitioner of Scrum.
