Anyone who feels they possess the knowledge of how to build complex software products using agile engineering practices and Scrum can validate that knowledge by taking the PSD I assessment from Scrum.org. Those who pass the assessment receive the industry recognized PSD I Certification.

The Professional Scrum Developer Assessments supports the mission of scrum.org “To improve the profession of Software Development”:
