Course Description:

Developing software with Scrum requires developers and testers to understand Agile Engineering Practices, including Test Driven Development (TDD), Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), Behavior Driven Development (BDD), Refactoring and Continuous Integration (CI). These skills are needed to develop good software with better quality. A Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) has a strong understanding of scrum principles and Agile engineering.

Scrum’s incremental-iterative approach to software development requires Development Teams to find, learn, and implement solid technical practices. The 5 day course provides developers, testers and managers with a comprehensive introduction to these practices. Throughout the course, participants will create solutions to real problems, including developing tests, designing and coding solutions, validating the solution and then refactoring their initial designs to improve code quality.


To earn a CSD credential, at least five days of formal training taught by Scrum Alliance REPs are required. Out of this:

  • A minimum of three days must be technical training through a three-day CSD technical skills course.
  • At least one day must be dedicated to the study of Scrum through an introduction to Scrum or a CSM course
  • Days 4 and 5 can be either completing a Certified Scrum Master certification OR attending a one-day Scrum elective course and a one-day introduction to Scrum course. This 5 day course fulfils the minimum requirements for the CSD certification.

You must also demonstrate an understanding of Agile engineering practices by passing a CSD assessment provided by the trainer. The trainer will upload and pay the certification fees for students as they take CSD-track courses. If you are a Scrum Alliance member and a CSM and take a 3-day CSD Technical Track course, you will receive notification to accept your CSD license, and the CSD certification will be added to your profile. There is no need for you to apply. Your certification is good for two years.

If you are not yet a Scrum Alliance member at the time of the first CSD track course, then you will receive membership for one year. After you complete all CSD requirements, as listed above, you will receive CSD certification notification. Your certification is good for two years.

You must make a lifelong commitment to continuous improvement by incorporating Scrum principles and practices into your world of work.
