Customer Reviews

Richard W. Sherwood, PMP, SMC and SFC
Program/Project Manager at Cognizant Technology Solutions

The Scrum Master Certified course worked out very well and exceeded my expectations. The course led towards the SMC exam that I was comfortable to take in a very short time. The important points that were presented turned out to be the important points for certification and the reading list from the SBOK helped me out also. The course materials and the overall training were excellent. I will be more than happy to recommend this course to my colleagues and friends. Thanks again!

Paul Quinnett
Project Manager at Poteet Construction LLC

The SMC class was very helpful for me to understand not only the Scrum Master responsibilities but the responsibilities of other SCRUM Core Team members also. This class is a good start for anyone entering or wanting to improve their outcome in SDLC using SCRUM. The course materials and the overall training were very good. I will be more than happy to recommend this course to my colleagues and friends. I took another SCRUM Master course on another platform that was much cheaper; however, it did not supply the proxy testing.

Bola Akintujoye
Consultant (Projects) at Great Place to Work UK

The overall SMC training program was excellent and felt that it was a right course for someone who wants to be a Scrum Master. I liked the learning pace and the chapter tests, which is a part of the excellent course materials that were provided.

Khalid Rafique
Technical Project Manager - ERP Cloud at Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited

The SMC training completely met my expectations. The course materials and the overall training were excellent. The Instructor was great and provided lots of good information. This course is worth recommending to my friends and colleagues.

Michael Charles
Project Management Consultant at Radient PMSL

The Scrum Agile training was a new insight for me having spent 45 years in traditional project management. As a lecturer and consultant in PM I am very excited to start applying my knowledge as a Scrum Master and embracing Agile project management. The two day Scrum Masters training course was excellent as well as the Fundamentals course, both of which prepared me well for the SMC exam (which was not so easy, by the way!)
