Event Details


Strengthen your technical skills in Agile software development — become a Certified Scrum Developer®


Agile software development requires a unique approach to the actual writing of code. While there are no “silver bullets,” certain practices are much better at controlling quality, while retaining the flexibility and maintainability required of Agile’s incremental product development approach. 

This 3-day course, primarily for developers, provides an immersive, hands-on coding experience with a time-tested set of engineering practices including relentless refactoring, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), pair-programming, emergent design & architecture, and many other supporting practices.

Today’s professional developer will appreciate experiencing these practices in a safe, fun, and mildly realistic environment.

Scrum Alliance Learning Objectives:  

Requirements for Scrum Developer certification

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.

There are currently two tracks to achieve CSD certification (detailed below). The courses for both tracks can be taken in any order. Once you complete a track, you will receive notification to accept your CSD license, and the CSD certification will be added to your profile. Your certification is valid for two years.

Track 1

  • CSM® course (2 days)
  • CSD technical course, including coding (3 days)

Track 2

  • Intro to Scrum CSD course (1 day)
  • CSD technical course, including coding (3 days)
  • CSD technical elective course (1 day)

During your CSD courses, you must demonstrate an understanding of Scrum and Agile engineering practices by passing a CSD assessment provided by the REP/instructor. The assessment may be an exam administered by the instructor to test your knowledge, or it may be an active, classroom-based assessment. When a REP/instructor uploads a student’s information into our system, they are recommending the student for certification.


Beginner to experienced.


3 days

Intended Audience:

Software developers, lead programmers, and architects. Participants will split into teams of 4-6 people who can read and understand the programming language selected by that team. Each participant will be working closely with others to craft real code.


  • At least 80% of participants have experience with the selected programming language(s).
  • Solid familiarity with an Agile framework such as Scrum, XP, or Kanban. This can be from at least 4 months on a coached Agile team, from fundamental Kanban or Scrum. (e.g., Certified Scrum Master), or from Agile Institute’s own Essential Agile Principles & Practices course.
  •  There are two possible education tracks to pursue a CSD certification. 
    • Track 1: CSM Course (2 days) + CSD Technical Course (3 days)
    • Track 2: CSD Intro Course (1 day) + CSD Technical Elective Course (1 day) + CSD Technical Course (3 days)

Attendee Requirements:

  • A computer with a prepared development environment. Students will be pair programming in this course and we will need at least 1 working computer for every two students.
  • Students will be provided with internet access by the facility.
