Very much enjoyed Kim as an instructor and would highly recommend.

About a month ago I completed the Scrum Master course and could have received a discount however, I wanted to take it from a different instructor and am so glad I did! What an excellent class lead by Eric! He kept us well engaged, and was extremely informative. I also appreciate his personal experiences as it related to the content. I will definitely recommend this class to colleagues. Thanks Eric!

Great training; I think most of us are hands on learners - so having so many "projects" to do kept us engaged. More so that we used real world examples.

Best class I took. Best instructor I ever had.

The class was very hands on and even the agenda for the class was sprint - I thought that was amazing way to learn the CSPO role. Thanks!

-Ritesh M., Cognizant Technology Solutions

Kim was amazing. She was clear, kept us focused, engaged, etc. She set clear expectations on what we should know before the class which was very helpful. It was a great mix of learning and applying. I felt like this could NOT have gone better. I don't feel like there was any issue with this being virtual as opposed to in-person.

-Katie M., Star Tribune Media

Great class, good flow. Open and honest communication; felt comfortable throughout. [Instructor was] professional and prepared.
