2-day training with great content, knowledgeable teachers and good refreshments. I highly recommend it!

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in February 2018

I attended the CSM training by KnowledgeHut at Mumbai, the trainer was very knowledgeable and engaged us in a lot of practical activities. There was a high level of interaction between the trainer and the participants which gave everyone an opportunity to clear their doubts. The support services (venue and food) were also up to the mark. Overall, a good learning experience!

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in January 2018

A great course that was practically oriented. A knowledgable trainer facilitated the 2-day workshop well. Took home an improved understanding of the subject matter. When combined with the training, clearing the certification test felt like a breeze.
