Our Students See All

The training was very interactive and engaging with the attendees.

Attended workshop in June 2018

Trainer Ashwinee Kalkura (SPC4, ICP-ACC, PMP) is very good Trainer and has very good understanding and working experience in SAFe Agile frame works. I and my team enjoyed the training and material shared for this training (Hard and Soft copies) are really good. There will be more members going to get trained from Knowledge hut in coming months, if Knowledge hut provides Ashwinee or similarly knowledgeable person.

Attended workshop in February 2018

The training was very engaging and informative. The scrum framework in general and the Product Owner role in detail were explained by actually applying the framework to the training. Though the attendees were from many different professional backgrounds and had different knowledge levels about Scrum, the trainer was able to touch upon each and every question that was asked. I would definitely recommend taking the training with Knowledgehut.

Attended workshop in July 2018

The best professional training I have ever attended! A lot of positive energy and concepts from the trainer "Stuart Mitchell". Also, the facilities and arrangements were excellent.

Scrum Masters must be equipped to scale Agile to the enterprise and lead high performance teams. The SAFe® 4 Scrum Master (SSM) Certification is a test of the Scrum Master’s ability to perform the responsibilities of a Scrum Master and lead successful Agile teams. Our course will help you understand the objectives of the exam and aim for a first time pass of the exam. Attendance of this workshop is also a prerequisite for appearing for the exam.

No, there is no online/virtual course for SSM. The SSM Certification requires in-depth knowledge of the SAFe® and Agile essentials and its technical concepts, which you get from our certified experts who lead the workshop.

You will get 16 PDUs with the Project Management Institute (PMI) for PMP and PMI-ACP certifications. Attendees may be eligible to apply for 16 SEUs under category C, toward earning or renewing their CSP through Scrum Alliance

PDUs and SEUs are credits awarded by the Project Management Institute and the Scrum Alliance respectively. They recognize your dedication to the Project Management and 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. Every PMI® certification, except the CAPM®, requires you to earn a specific number of PDUs per three-year certification cycle.
