Overview

Firebrand's accelerated course is designed to prepare you for Scrum.org's Professional Scrum Developer .NET certification exam.

Attaining the Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) .NET certification will enhance a Scrum Development Team's productivity and efficiency.

This course teaches you software development using Scrum and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools. You'll learn how to create useful tools, and how to:

  • Form effective teams
  • Explore and understand “Brownfield” architecture
  • Define quality attributes, acceptance criteria, and “done”
  • Create automated builds
  • Handle software hotfixes
  • Verify existence and removal of bugs
  • Plan releases and sprints
  • Estimate product backlog
  • Create and manage a sprint backlog
  • Hold a sprint review
  • Use Sprint Retrospectives
  • Use emergent architecture to avoid technical debt
  • Use Test Driven Development
  • Setup and leverage continuous integration
  • Decrease testing times, using Test Impact Analysis
  • Use refactoring practices
  • Create and manage test plans and cases
  • Create, run, record, and play back manual tests
  • Setup a branching strategy and branch code
  • Write more maintainable code
  • Identify and eliminate people and process dysfunctions
  • Inspect and improve your team’s software development process

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online Scrum .NET courses
  2. You'll be Scrum .NET certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be Scrum .NET trained in record time
  3. Our Scrum .NET course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass Scrum .NET first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn Scrum .NET faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying Scrum .NET with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76560 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"I had an online instructor led course but had the great advantage of using Firebrands Wyboston Lakes facility. I have loved every minute of training with Firebrand. It feels like they have thought of everything to make me as comfortable as possible. The instructor was amazing and knew so much and had a lot of real world experience. He was very personable and helped us with any real world situations we needed help with as well."
