Testimonials

"I opted to take the Scrum Master Certification virtual course and was blown away. Mike Stuedemann is an exceptional instructor and is very engaging. Mike used countless activities, including case studies, polling, breakout rooms and other 'physical' assignments that got us up and moving around. Additionally Mike's extensive experience and ability to tell stories and provide real live examples made the material easy to understand and remember. After the class I was able to review my notes and study for about half a day and take the exam and pass with a perfect score. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the project management space looking to transition to Agile/Scrum."

Diana Greenberg

"The Certified Scrum Master course was fast moving and packed with great information. The instructor did an awesome job keeping the pace of the class moving and interjected class exercises and stories to help enforce the topics being discussed. I would highly recommend this class for anyone interested in being a Certified Scrum Master. This class was great preparation for passing the online certification exam."

Roger Burgess

"This class has great exercise, is interactive, and changed my mindset in an engaging manner. EVERYTHING will apply to my job."

Katrina Decheine

"I really liked the exercises and interactions. The spring exercise was particularly reinforcing. The instructor provided a number of real life examples that supported the material, and he was great with keeping the learning environment positive and productive."

Colleen Johnson

"The instructors were very knowledgeable about Scrum and I liked the group collaboration. I'm hoping to leverage what I learned in my job transition."

Tess Kavanagh

"I really liked the small class size and hands-on simulation of Sprint Cycle. I work in Clinical Quality Improvement - standardizing workflow, related Electronic Health Record (Epic) functionality, clinical best practice, and external reporting requirements in a standardized way across 100 clinics. "Everything is important" in our organization and I've been looking for a method that promotes flexibility and reigns in the passionate chaos. I'm going to talk with my director about the value of Scrum."

"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, "
