The CSM training was excellent and up to the mark to understand what Scrum is and how we can effectively implement it within the team. The trainer explained in a very effective way by forming a team and giving them the exercise that ended up in learning lot of things about Scrum. Through this exercise we learned about pros and cons in Scrum process if not effectively implemented etc. It was a fun-loving learning exercise.

Very good training material and trainer from KH!

Attended ICP Agile Certified Coaching (ICP-ACC) workshop in June 2018

Marco was an excellent mentor. During the course he was not just illustrating the responsibilities of a PO, he was literally acting like one, while the audience was the team. As a consequence, one could notice easily what a good PO can do to achieve an excellent outcome.

SEUs are Scrum Educational Units, issued by the Scrum Alliance. SEUs are the mark of educational experience needed to earn the CSP (Certified Scrum Professional) certification.

PDUs and SEUs are credits awarded by the Project Management Institute and the Scrum Alliance respectively. They recognize your dedication to the Agile world through the award of credits for every educational effort you make throughout your career. At present, Scrum Alliance members who hold a Certified Scrum Professional®, Certified Enterprise Coach and/or Certified Scrum Trainer credential need to earn SEUs to get recertified. PDUs are offered by the PMI®, and every PMI® certification, except the CAPM®, requires you to earn a specific number of PDUs per three-year certification cycle.
