A very well-paced training which was easy-to-comprehend, thanks to the competent trainers. Also support was very helpful. I felt what I learned really prepared me for the CSM exam.

This course was conducted professionally, interactively and with attention to real-life scenarios. Daniel Gullo was great. He had a relaxing, light-hearted demeanor and always made the subject matter interesting and fun. The course content was very comprehensive and thorough. It gave me a different perspective on the Agile way, as a PMP. Daniel facilitated the hands-on lab/simulations very effectively and got everyone involved. The venue was comfortable and the lunch was also adequate.
