Request Information

Advance your technical skills in Agile product development. Certified Scrum Developers (CSD) have demonstrated — through a combination of formal training and a technical skills assessment — that they have a working understanding of Scrum and Agile principles and have learned specialized Agile product development skills.

The goal of this course is to expose students to advanced tools and collaboration techniques needed to build great products in the iterative and incremental fashion that Scrum requires. Over 50% of the class involves hands-on coding through sample exercises and can be run in C#, Python, Java, and JavaScript/TypeScript.


To achieve the Advanced Certified Scrum Developer (A-CSD) credential, students must:

  1. Hold a Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) certification with the Scrum Alliance.
  2. Attend the two-day A-CSD course.
  3. During the two-day training, students will undergo periodic verbal and written evaluation to confirm mastery of the material. Students will have the opportunity to work with the instructor throughout class to pass the evaluations. Upon successful completion of the class and evaluations, students will become Advanced Certified Scrum Developers.
  4. Validate at least 12 months of work experience specific to the role of Scrum developer/team member within the past five years.
