Alex is a fantastic trainer. I did not have much expectation from the training but I have learned a lot in the training. Not only I got to know more about Scrum and its tools but also where to use it and where not to. Alex has immense knowledge in scrum having spent more than a decade as a Scrum Professional. I would recommend everyone to register for this course who wants to know about Scrum processes & practises.

I took the 3 days Certified Scrum Developer course at Knowledge hut and overall I had an enriching experience. The class size was good with 25-30 folks in there. The course was well-organized and distributed across the 3 days. Before this training, I had kind of informal understanding about Scrum. However, post this training my knowledge about Scrum and Agile principles has formalized and has been given a better shape.

KnowledgeHut Support On Your CSD Journey

Our CSD Training and Certification is ideal for CSM Credential Holders who are:

  • IT professionals, supporting software development projects
  • Architects
  • Business Analysts
  • Developers
  • QA testers
  • Engineers
  • Project/Product Managers

Scrum is rapidly emerging as the desired approach to product development, and the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) credential is given to those who have demonstrated through formal training and a technical assessment that they have a thorough grasp of Scrum principles. To succeed with Scrum, teams must have very specific skills and capabilities. They must be able to break down functionality into small blocks which fit into sprints, and develop high quality software that is flexible enough to be changed easily.

No, there is no online/virtual course for CSD. The CSD Certification requires in-depth knowledge of the Scrum essentials and its technical concepts, which you get from our certified experts who lead the workshop.

You will get 40 PDUs and 24 SEUs on completing the 5 day training toward your continuing education requirements with the Project Management Institute (PMI) for PMP and PMI-ACP certifications. Those who attend the 3 day Technical Track training will get 24 PDUs and 24 SEUs.

PDUs and SEUs are credits awarded by the Project Management Institute and the Scrum Alliance respectively. They recognize your dedication to the Project Management and Agile world through the award of credits for every educational effort you make throughout your career. At present, Scrum Alliance members who hold a Certified Scrum Professional®, Certified Enterprise Coach and/or Certified Scrum Trainer credential need to earn SEUs to get recertified. Every PMI® certification, except the CAPM®, requires you to earn a specific number of PDUs per three-year certification cycle.

No, your certification fee is included in the workshop fee.

There is no need for you to apply. Your certification is good for two years.
