The Certified Scrum Developer Immersion provides delegates with a deep understanding of Scrum, the Agile Manifesto and with the skills required by Extreme Programming teams. The course is delivered using an iterative and incremental approach where concepts are reinforced gradually. The course emphasizes hands-on learning through simulation and practical exercises which are then followed by reflection.
The concepts and themes are revisited throughout the course with increasing level of detail and rigour. In this way, the concepts are connected and reinforced to provide a sound and holistic understanding of complementary agile practices. The hands-on exercises and simulations also extend the concepts to large scale product development and distributed teams.
In addition to providing a strong foundation, the intended outcome is to help attendees think on their feet to address new and unique challenges not covered by this course.
Students are assessed throughout the 5 days and are given opportunities to improve their craft. Once completed successfully, students will have the necessary and sufficient training to apply for the Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) designation.

- Understand the rules of Scrum and provide rationale for their application
