I really enjoyed the course given by Russell Miller. The course was very thorough. I really liked all the course knowledge activities. I feel like I was really prepared to take the PSM 1 Assessment. Taking the course via Zoom was great experience as well. Online learning is here to stay.

Punit Doshi is excellent trainer & I was not confident to have remote training, I postponed it from March to June, hoping by that Class room training will start. Finally sacrificed to have online training. The way it was conducted, never felt that it was online & the experience was also like a seamless virtual class room. Thanks to all tools & the way trainer trained. Am strongly recommending knowledgehut to my colleagues in IBM as well as outside IBM.
