The Braintrust Consulting Group, a worldwide leader in Agile, will host a Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) training course in Los Angeles, California April 20-22, 2015. This three-day class is aimed at helping software development professionals and teams become more effective when implementing Scrum and other Agile methodologies.

The goal for the Certified Scrum Developer certification course is to prepare participants through formal training to demonstrate a working understanding of Scrum principles and specialized Agile engineering skills in a technical skills assessment. This class is specifically designed to deliver the core Agile Development Practices Learning Objectives of the CSD program and should prepare the participant to successfully pass the Scrum Alliance CSD Candidate Assessment.

In order to earn the CSD certification, the Scrum Alliance requires at least five days of formal training followed by a CSD assessment/evaluation. This class fulfills 21 of the required 35 hours and can be paired with the prerequisite Certified ScrumMaster class to complete the requirement.
