Very well conducted. Proactive management from the moderator, many exercises, hence quite practical, minimizing theoretical overload. Very pleased with the learning, for new starters as well as more experienced participants. Great experience sharing.

The experience over the two-day course was fantastic. It was not a dry explanation of the Scrum framework. Instead, a practical, example driven 2 days where we worked through all elements of the Scrum framework. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marco Mulder as a Scrum Master trainer or as a business Scrum coach within a commercial environment. His experience in this field was clear and impressive.

Knowledge Hut experience has been very good, this is my second registration with them directly and had total 3 registrations with them. The Trainer, Venue, Course material, Food and other logistics are well organized and managed. Special thanks to Lalit who takes extra effort to help and coordinate on everything. I am happy to take up other courses offered with Knowledge Hut and recommend others also to consider.

Marco is a brilliant Scrum coach. I had the pleasure to attend Certified Scrum Master training with Marco as a trainer. I was particularly impressed by Marco's hands on experience that sets him as a captivating knowledgeable trainer. Marco has a very unique approach as a trainer in which he actively engages all participants regardless of their background. And I still keep the really inspiring book on SCRUM he gave to me along with the planning poker cards we used to do task estimation! As a Scrum coach, Marco earns my highest recommendation.

Scrum Masters must be equipped to scale Agile to the enterprise and lead high performance teams. Scrum masters these days need to be aware of multiple technologies including applying Kanban to improve work flows and productivity, DevOps practices and engaging teams in high level of interactions and facilitating high performance. The SAFe® 4 Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) Certification is a test of the Scrum Master’s ability to perform these responsibilities 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 SASM. The SASM 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
