Certified Scrum Developer® Training Program

Certified Scrum Developer is a two days training program that leads to a CSD certificate from Scrum Alliance. There is no assessment for this program from Scrum Alliance, but coaches will evaluate students before processing certification.

Course Description

Scrum Alliance adopted the Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game, co-authored and updated (most recently in 2020) by the Scrum framework’s co-creators the guiding curriculum for this offering. Certified Scrum Developer candidates are expected to build a body of knowledge of the Scrum framework, including its accountabilities, events, and artifacts. Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not a prescriptive methodology.

Students attending the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) course should expect to learn essential concepts and skills to work successfully in a Scrum team that focuses on creating software. They also should expect to be enabled to bring essential collaboration skills into their team. Thirdly, this course should understand the need for agile engineering practices and encourage participants to adopt them in their contexts.

Learning Objectives

This document describes the Learning Objectives that must be covered in a Certified Scrum Developer (CSD®) offering in addition to the Scrum Foundations learning objectives. These learning objectives consider the following:

  • While the application of Scrum is in no way limited to the area of software development, Scrum Alliance recognizes the special need for additional education in this field.
  • Scrum is inherently incremental; therefore, a software development implementation of Scrum requires an incremental approach to software engineering.

This entails covering Learning Objectives within the following categories:

  • Lean, Agile, and Scrum
  • Collaboration
  • Architecture & Design
  • Test-Driven Development
  • Integrating Continuously

Students attending a CSD offering should expect that each Learning Objective identified in this document will be covered. Students should also expect that the Scrum Foundations Learning Objectives are covered either before or during the offering.

Who Needs This Program?

CSD training is for the Scrum team, including Scrum Master. We highly recommend inviting the whole team together to learn rather than just 1-2 members.

Program Outline

What are lean, agile, and scrum? Scrum framework in brief. Essential elements of scrum covering roles (Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Developers), artifacts (Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog and Increment with commitment towards product goal, sprint goal and definition of done), and events (the sprint, sprint planning, daily scrum, sprint review, and sprint retrospective). It includes creating a sprint goal, selecting product backlog items (PBIs) with value orientation in mind, and decomposing PBIs into smaller work items. The workshop emphasizes the collaboration between the Scrum team members, especially the product owner and developers, for understanding the items and turning them into a valuable stepping stone toward the product goal. It includes asking for clarification, adding acceptance criteria, sizing or estimating items, breaking them down into smaller items.

Explain at least three differences between a working group and a team and discuss at least three attributes of effective teams. Additionally, demonstrate “working together as one team.” Example definition of team: a small number of people with complementary skills, committed to a common purpose, performance goal, and approach, are mutually accountable. Example: T-shaped skill profile.

Learn pair programming, pair designing, pair working in general, and creating something – code or non-technical – in a Scrum simulation. Understand about shorter feedback loops, less work-in-progress, less misinterpretation of needs, direct feedback of the working solution, and actually trying the built product.

Certified Scrum Developer training from Agilemania fosters an understanding of the work, improves shared ownership and responsibility, improves estimability and reliability, reduces defects, and avoids an accumulation of technical debt. This could include test-first, quick design sessions, spikes to understand new technology, constant refactoring, metaphor, conversational modeling, CRC cards, pair programming. This training covers refactoring to improve a system without changing its observable behavior. Refactoring fosters automated testing, improves readability and maintainability, supports improving system performance, counter technical debt, and improves extensibility.
Test first focuses on the behavior of the system. The system design emerges dynamically through the adjustment to additional tests. Benefits include simplicity, avoidance of bloating, defect reduction, built-in regression checks with automated tests. The Certified Scrum Developer training from Agilemania points out important to have the simplest possible solution that passes the test in the first place to ensure the test is working and refactor it to a sensible design that gets verified immediately.
CI is the practice of reducing the feedback time between code creation and integration. It can be supported using technical means. CI changes habits and behaviors, creates awareness about shared responsibility, is the base for frequent deliveries, reduces defects, reduces risk from the late discovery of integration issues. Automation tools reduce manual repetition. A single repository acts as a recorded document, configuration as code for repeatable error-free process, and supports continuous delivery.


There are no hard pre-requisites for attending this workshop; however, a basic understanding of Agile and some experience on an agile team could be useful. It is advisable to go through the Scrum Guide available for free at before attending this training.
