Alumni View

I attended the Leading SAFe and then SAFe Lean Portfolio Management courses at tectrain. It was an excellent and above all insightful training experience. I was completely satisfied from the organization to the training. Exceptional training documents plus bonus material, which are stored electronically in the e-learning area. In addition, I was fully taken care of by the dedicated and very competent trainers and my expectations were more than met. I strongly recommend tectrain when it comes to SAFe.
