    The training was in-depth and clarified all the doubts I had as a practitioner. The two-day training led by an expert trainer gave me a lot of clarity. The test was extremely easy and the focus of the session was on learning as a whole.

    The course was an excellent one. It surely served the purpose of providing a good understanding of agile and scrum. Though I had worked on several agile projects in the past, it helped fill a lot of gaps in my understanding.

    Mr Amit Kulkarni was one of the most knowledgeable trainers I had ever come across. He encouraged the trainees to stay relevant with what was currently going on in the industry. His coaching style was unique, incremental and iterative! Go book his sessions without a second thought! For KnowledgeHut - full marks - their prompt due diligence and follow ups to any questions were top-notch. The entire pre and post registration process was really smooth.
