Frequently Asked Questions

NO. As per the new CSD curriculum, CSD is a separate foundation course which does not require you to attend the CSM class. In fact the course is designed to teach CSM topics as well as a Certified Scrum Developer. 

Our CSD course curriculum follows Scrum Alliance guideline and covers all topics of Scrum in details for one full day and more. So if you are a developer, team member, QA, DevOps/SRE engineers then you do not need to attend CSM anymore to understand Scrum. If you want to add another certificate in your bag, then you can definitely go for that. 

There is no test requirement for CSD Certification. You need to attend 2 days class to complete the certification. 

It is a two day long course or 14 hours of minimum learning for online based course.
