Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) Track One Overview:
A Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) is someone who has demonstrated through a combination of formal training and a technical skills assessment that he or she has a working understanding of Scrum principles and has learned specialized Agile engineering skills. The Scrum Alliance requires at least five days of formal training followed by a CSD assessment/evaluation. To make it easy for you, The Braintrust Consulting Group has bundled a series of our classes into a complete track. CSD Track One combines our Certified ScrumMaster class and our Agile Engineering Class. CSD Track One is intended for professional software developers who are on a Scrum team and want to understand how Scrum and Agile engineering practices are applied and how they affect their role in the team. It’s ideal for candidates seeking both their Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and CSD certifications.
CSD Track One Classes:
Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) (2 days) (14 PDUs)
This class is an in-depth two-day immersion into the world of Scrum. The class is full of practical, real world techniques that can be implemented immediately at your workplace. This class will allow your organization to enjoy the many advantages Scrum has to offer. Hands-on exercises demonstrate key concepts and let you experience the benefits of Scrum firsthand.
Agile Engineering (AE) (3 days) (21 PDUs)
This class is aimed at helping software development professionals and teams be more effective when implementing Scrum and other Agile software development methodologies. In an effort to raise the effectiveness of Scrum, the Scrum Alliance has created the CSD program. This class is designed to deliver the core Agile Development Practices Learning Objectives of that program and should prepare the participant to successfully pass the Scrum Alliance CSD Candidate Assessment.
