Yes, on completing the course, you will receive a course completion certificate from KnowledgeHut.

To get certified you will have to attend two days of training by a SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC) followed by SP exam to demonstrate your SAFe® knowledge. Once you pass the exam you will be certified as a SAFe® Practitioner.

No, your certificate will not mention the mode in which you have attended the course. It will look the same as the in-person certificates.

The Scaled Agile framework is evolving, all thanks to the engagements and contributions of those who share their ideas as well as practical experiences in the workplace. Renewal of your certification validates your interest in keeping up with the latest best practices in SAFe® and your commitment to professional excellence.

Certifications from Scaled Agile, Inc. have a validity of one year. To renew your SAFe certification you will need to purchase the bundled product which includes Membership and Certification. This comes at a price of $295 ($100 for renewal and $195 for membership).

If you possess more than one certification from Scaled Agile, you can renew all of them together at this cost. For example, if you have a Leading SAFe certification expiring on 6 Mar 2022 and a SAFe for Teams certification expiring on 10 October 2022, when you pay $295, both certifications will get renewed and will have the same expiry of 10 October 2023 or whichever is the later date.

Here are the steps to renew your certification:

- Log in to the SAFe Community platform using your credentials.

- Click on the "Renew" button next to your certification (located at the top of the homepage)

- You will then be presented with the payment Screen (Shopping Cart), allowing you to complete the renewal process.

In that case, you will only need to pay $195 and continue to benefit from all the valuable content and interactions at the SAFe Community Platform.

The latest release of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is version 5, update 5.1. KnowledgeHut's Leading SAFe 5 Certification course is aligned with the latest version of SAFe.

No. The version of SAFe remains SAFe 5. The change from SAFe 5 to 5.1 is simply a set of updates to SAFe 5. One of these updates includes a new SAFe 5.1 Big Picture, but this and the other updates, are all in support of SAFe 5 for Lean Enterprises.

An upgrade is when a significantly changed version of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is released; this is recognized typically by an increase in the major version number (e.g. 4 to 5).

Updates are when incremental changes are made to the existing version of the Framework and no upgrade is required.  Updates do not require a retest if you already have the most up-to-date certification available, and no upgrade is required.

The change from SAFe 5 to 5.1 is an update, not an upgrade. 

With a commitment to supporting and evolving SAFe practices, Scaled Agile is on a mission to meet the ever-changing needs of SAFe Enterprises and Partner communities. Towards this end, Scaled Agile will continually update their existing articles and keep adding new ones to reflect the updated understanding from the SAFe community and practitioners on best practices in Lean Agile at scale.

The latest update 5.1 was rolled out to the latest version, SAFe 5 on February 10, 2021. The key updates are as follows: 

  • An updated Big Picture (now at version 5.1) 
  • New guidance for operational and development value streams to support organizing around value, the #1 request from our customers 
  • ART and Team Topologies, patterns for organizing teams and ARTs to improve flow. 
  • New guidance around DevSecOps technical skills and tools that power the Continuous Delivery Pipeline. 
  • Integrated Participatory Budgeting, a dynamic and collaborative process of allocating funding to value streams. 
  • Specific guidance for applying Lean-Agile practices to business and technology domains, including a new SAFe for Hardware article.
