The Scrum Alliance requires at least 5 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 Two 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 who already have their Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification or developers who are interested in move advanced Test Driven Development (TDD) techniques.
