What People Are Saying About Us

Sommer Bennett

USA | Talent Acquisition Partner

The APF Certified Talent Scrum Master program was insightful. The small group environment was great, and I enjoyed the space it allowed for open forum and content review along with experience shares. The facilitator helped us to understand the concepts through real-time examples and it was a good learning journey.

Jacob Varghese

Saudi Arabia | Sr. HR Consultant

I got interested in the APF CTSM certification after taking an online course on Agile HR from Culturelligence (APF Elite Training Partner) on Udemy. I strongly feel that the concepts are practical and applicable. The concepts were explained clearly and in a simple, understandable manner with very good presentations and activities.
