This training is for folks who would like to understand the basics of scrum framework and dive deep in roles/responsibilities for a scrum master. John is an amazing teacher who focuses on explaining the course with examples and use cases. He is always open to questions and encourages them (either in class or over the email). He made the entire learning process very interactive, which made it so easy to understand. 
I highly recommend taking the class with him."

"John has an encyclopedic knowledge of what it takes to be a Scrum Master, as well as plenty of real world examples to contextualize that knowledge. After spending the two days with John during his course, I was able to not only pass the PSM I exam, but more importantly, I was able to bring his guidance back to my organization and help us improve our own practices. It also helps that he is a nice guy, a patient instructor, and impossible to stump with a question. I recommend John to anyone looking to improve their knowledge of Scrum."
