Customer Feedback for Certified Scrum Master Certification Training

  • Steve Ditty

       I wanted to let you know that I took and passed the PMP exam. Thanks to iCert Global and especially my Cincinnati course instructor, who was an excellent teacher and helped me immensely.  

  • Nancy Davis

       I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this training. Yomi was awesome as a trainer and working to make sure that we understood the concepts. Controlling Cost and Controlling Risk are the most complicated, but Yomi spent time after class working through questions to help others understand. This class also helped to change my perception of the PMP being this MONSTER to something that I can I can successfully do.  

  • Taylor Mitchell

       I thought the class was very informative. The instructor did an excellent job breaking down each chapter to where it was easy to understand. I was also very impressed with his commitment to help us pass ever after the class is over.
