I am so glad that I attended “Certified Scrum Master (CSM®) Training/Workshop” organized by KnowledgeHut! on 5th and 6th Dec 2017. Trainer was excellent and Fantastic, who has proven that he has expertise with strong knowledge on the Agile Practice. The trainer does an excellent job of incorporating everyone’s experience. Strongly recommend KnowledgeHut for anyone who is interested in progressing with their career in practicing Agile and the Scrums.

The course was really well led by Alexandre Magno. He showed incredible knowledge and patience throughout the course giving us real tangible examples of how to use the material and where misunderstandings about what the course was and wasn't came up. This cleared a lot of the mist for me about agile in general and being a product owner compared against a scrum master in specific. I'm very glad I went on this course and can apply this content in my work.

Session was interactive and knowledgeable.

I recently attended the SA course offered by KH in Dublin. The instructor was knowledgeable and able to answer questions related to practice and experience beyond theory. I met experienced Agile professionals and we discussed practices, global industry and local scene, trends, common issues and solutions.The course extended my knowledge and helped me to successfully pass the certification exam with full 100% on my first attempt.I recommend KH as a solid provider of industry recognized courses.

Instructor provided many real-world examples and answered questions well. I was well prepared to take the exam immediately. Perhaps it should be discussed with a little more detail how different organizations have different philosophies on how to look at Scrum. For example, some say Scrum has 6 meetings (not 4), others exclude the initial Vision discussion from the count.
