Professional Scrum Developer™ Certification


Prove Your Scrum Knowledge for Software Development

The Professional Scrum DeveloperTM (PSD) assessment is available to anyone who wishes to validate their knowledge of how to build complex software products using Scrum. Those that pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PSD Certification to demonstrate their mastery of the content.

What is a Professional Scrum Developer

PictureProfessional Scrum Developers are members of the Scrum Team and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Scrum and their ability to build software using Scrum in real-world situations.  The value of certification is intimately tied to the demonstration of knowledge needed to achieve it. By that measure, the PSD assessment is significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum. And, we strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.

Become A Professional Scrum Developer 

It is not mandatory that you take a Professional Scrum training class to take one of our assessments, although it is highly recommended that you take the Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development training class.  We believe that certification is more than just a way to show that you attended a class and that is why Professional certifications are so highly regarded in the industry. Therefore, we make assessments available to anyone as a way for you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the role of Scrum Developer in detail.  Each training class includes a free attempt at the corresponding assessment. 

Prepare for the Assessment

The PSD I assessment is grounded in the Professional Scrum Developer subject areas and study material is available in the Software Developer Learning Path. The assessment is exhaustive and rigorous. Many questions ask you to think about or interpret the meaning from the Scrum Guide, apply content from the Software Developer Learning Path, the PSD I Suggested Reading, and in some cases, apply your own experience. Those that pass the PSD I assessment will receive the industry recognized PSD I certification.  Find additional information to help you prepare for the PSD I Assessment and ways to learn about Scrum.
