This training is On-Line and is Blended Training, with latest video and collaboration tools and with two very experienced SAFe teachers.Everything is kept together on our e-learning platform. As SPCT Gold partner and part of SPCT community we have together with Scaled Agile developed an approach with four main blocks of teaching on 4-4.5h. On top of that we have added preparation and certification support meetings before and after the trainings and homework in between. This all in all is guaranteeing the quality Scaled Agile is requiring and we then take it to one level above as well.
