Attended a 2 day weekend course by Knowledgehut for the CSM certification. The instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging. Excellent experience.

Attended workshop in April 2018

The CSPO Training was awesome and great. The trainer Anderson made all the concepts look so easy and simple. Using his past experience as examples to explain various scenarios was a plus. Moreover, it was an active session with a lot of participant involvement which not only made it interactive but interesting as well. Would definitely recommend this Training.
