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.
