Last year, I enrolled for the ASM (Agile Scrum Master) course conducted by Simplilearn. I received a good deal on the course fee, as it also included a complimentary EXIN exam voucher, using which I could enroll and sit for the official EXIN ASM examination too. The best part of this deal was that both the live classes and the EXIN examination can be taken from the comforts of our home. Every Simplilearn student will be provided with a personalized portal access (lms), using which the student can watch the recorded course sessions and take part in the objective tests, which will sure help to boost one's confidence levels as we progress through the course. Using the ‘lms’ portal, we can download the study materials and recordings of past live sessions and also attend the live instructor lead classes. I was so impressed by the professionalism and sound practical knowledge exhibited by our tutor. Even though once in a while, some participants experienced an issue with audio/video renderings, their technical staff was able to rectify them at once. I attended all live classes (eight in total) using a mobile 4G network, I never faced a single issue with live class delivery. I was already familiar with webex remote sessions and it is such a flawless medium to attend live sessions and to provide remote technical support. Even beyond the classes, the Simplilearn staff was so helpful in listening to all my queries and helped to resolve them immediately. I also received extensions to access the learning portal and even attended multiple live batch sessions. I will recommend ‘Simplilearn’ to all aspiring IT and Management professionals, who are aiming to get popular accreditations like PMP, Prince2, Agile Scrum, Cloud Architect, etc. to advance their careers.
