"I wanted to bring to your attention some feedback on the Certified ScrumMaster training presented at Watermark Learning. This was by far the best continuing education experience I have been exposed to in a very long time. The instructor was very knowledgeable about the subject matter as well as passionate about teaching it to others. Both of these elements made for an extremely informative as well as enjoyable experience. The instructor was able to keep our entire class engaged as well as facilitate the room dynamics like a pro. Thank you for such a wonderful learning experience. This makes bragging about Watermark Learning a no brainer! All the best, "
