I had the privilege to study at PMS under the guidance of Mr. Duminda on multiple certifications such as PMP and ACP. Recently I joined his Competent Scrum Master batch (which is aiming for Professional Scrum Master Certification accredited to which is a 2-day workshop that covers the entire scrum framework and the required agile knowledge base. The workshop includes theoretical knowledge base covering sessions as well as physical activities enhancing the effectiveness of understanding the base / foundation of the Scrum framework and how it can be used in your day-to-day professional and personal life. The post course mock paper session (consisting of 10 sample papers) provides an immense support on understanding the real exam structure and how the questions are derived based on Scrum Guide. Last but not least, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Duminda and wishing him all the very best in his effort on servicing the project management community in Sri Lanka.

The Competent Scrum Master training course conducted by PMS exceeded my expectations! Content and presentation by the lecturer Mr. Duminda was consistently high quality and engaging. Most importantly, each session provided an excellent review of the challenges and opportunities inherent in each area – while challenging us to clarify and to find our own answers. I feel that all the classroom delivery tools & techniques used, such as Team based exercises & hands-on activities, case studies, ppt presentations, Practice question papers etc, were extremely effective and inspiring. At no point did I feel that the training was "long" or "dragging on". Even after breaks/lunch, I felt that there was a lot of energy and enthusiasm. It is great to have such an amiable & energetic lecturer Mr. Duminda. I felt challenged and consistently drawn into the exercises and presentations had my full attention due to the way in which they were conducted. I passed my PSM1 certification with 89% on my first attempt and thank you - PMS!

He is a fantastic coach and he makes the things simple with practical examples. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic when it comes to Agile project management and knows how to put the ideas across. Competent scrum master’ was a great course, covered the essentials and deals with a lot of potential situations and ways to handle them. By attending the program I got necessary knowledge, skills, tools, technique and best practices required to become an effective scrum master. The special revision class before the exam and the papers he prepared and provided gave me great confidence to face the Professional Scrum master 1 certification by and to pass it with good marks. I must also mention that the knowledge I got from the program not only helped me to pass the exam but also to apply in real working environment in day today work. I strongly recommend the 'Competent scrum master' program to anyone who wants to learn about Agile, scrum and skills to become an effective scrum master. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Mr. Duminda for his continuous guidance and encouragement provided towards me to achieve this qualification and I wish him and PMS all the very best!

It's a great training. Covers the essentials and deals with a lot of potential situations and ways to handle them. Going into this training course my expectation was between boring and somewhat engaging as per my previous experience with training. I was pleasantly surprised. I found instructor Duminda entertaining and the course material laid out in a way as to keep the class engaged and interactive at all times. I really enjoyed the class. Learned how I can apply scrum to my project works. I learned the benefits of Scrum and how Scrum teams work in general. I would rate the overall training quality as excellent, the expertise of the instructor as excellent, and the course material quality as excellent.
