An excellent workshop on becoming a Certified ScrumMaster!

Attended Certified Scrum Product Owner®(CSPO) Certification workshop in November 2018

As Stuart (the trainer) mentioned at the beginning of the course, it was the best training we were to receive till date and I totally agree with him. He kept the participants engaged while delivering the course. I passed in the 1st try itself with 100% marks and already am using what I've learned in real-time scenarios.

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in June 2018

Excellent course content. Immensely helped me in understanding the intricacies of Agile.

Attended Certified Scrum Product Owner®(CSPO) Certification workshop in March 2018

Attending SAFe training with Knowledge Hut was great value addition for me. Trainer was very enthusiastic and knew the content well. The mix of the batch was quite effective and helped network with like minded professionals from different companies. The group exercises and brainstorming further helped in facilitating the interaction and assimilating the content.
