When faced with certificates like this, you may have carefully read the book that gives you the certification (SAFe DevOps Digital Workbook 5.0), but you really don't know if what you have read will help you pass the certification exam.
I have designed this course based on my own experience and the compilation of the exams I have taken. I have more than 20 certifications in agility, and specifically 10 in Scrum_org and some SAFE's certifications.
By taking the course exams, you can validate whether you are truly prepared to present yourself and validate on the wrong questions where your area of improvement would be. Below you can find the official information about the course.
