Applying Professional Scrum™ for Software Development (APS-SD)
Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It
Applying Professional Scrum™ for Software Development (APS-SD) is a 3-day hands-on course where students experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints, creating code on a realistic software system to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course, formerly known as Professional Scrum Developer, includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer I certification exam (PSD I).
Over the 3 days, students gain a real-world view of what it is like to build software with Scrum. They collaborate over a series of Sprints applying modern engineering practices, and using the Scrum framework to manage complexity. The key focus of the class is on how to develop and deliver increments of releasable functionality. Students will experience real-world challenges and issues, and through a series of Sprints will learn how to continuously improve the way they perform their work.
All are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience. However, the following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SAFe® 5 Agilist (SA) certification exam:
The APS for Software Development course is intended for all members of a Scrum Team involved in developing and delivering software-based systems including architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, managers, IT-Operations, and others, including Scrum Masters and Product Owners.
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment, and are also entitled to a discount on the PSM II assessment. The industry-recognized PSM certifications require a minimum passing score.
Students of Scrum.org courses are able to claim Project Management Institute (PMI) PDU credit: 21 PDUs after attending a three-day APS-SD course. Please note that PMI PDUs are earned for course attendance and not for passing a Scrum.org assessment. Students can claim PDUs under PMI’s “Education courses provided by other third-party providers” category. You can claim your PDUs online at https://ccrs.pmi.org.
The course content is written and updated by Scrum.org, led by Ken Schweber, one of the inventors of Scrum.
The PSM (Professional Scrum Master) certification is recognized globally as evidence of the highest level of knowledge in Scrum.
Certification for life – no annual renewal fee is required.
