Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) – Live Online Training
'Fantastic training course. I was a bit apprehensive going into a two day course in lockdown during the covid crisis, as I thought it would be a bit intense over zoom for two days, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The course format was really good and engaging, not too much of following slides and the activities made sure everyone could get involved as and when they chose to. Activities were frequent enough to keep engagement high and particularly wanted to call out how good the breaks were - I think it was really important to give everyone the chance to stretch their legs and grab a coffee so frequently. It meant each time I came back I was revitalised to continue.
David was a brilliant trainer, very charismatic and energetic and offered a lot of his knowledge and happy to answer any questions that came his way. I thought the tools used were great - to be able to split into sub groups on Zoom was really good so that we all felt we were still engaging with others, rather than when we all fit into the big group session The whiteboard was good fun and useful tool to share ideas. The content itself was really good, I felt like I took away a lot of new ideas and ways of working in agile and am now looking forward to continuing my role with this knowledge to help.
All in all, would 100% recommend this course. I think you're doing a fantastic job of continuing the training and having adapted it to a virtual format in the crisis. It was really informative and you managed to keep it light and entertaining, which I often find difficult even with training in person, let alone a virtual course. Thanks a lot.'
