Bernedette Perera

Associate Business Analyst, Talliance

I have immensely benefitted from the training conducted by Rumesh on Agile Software Project Management and Business Analysis. He combines the theoretical knowledge and the related frameworks such as Scrum and Kanban along with rich experience and practical examples. He is very intuitive and practical. I am sure organizations and managers aspiring to transit to Agile will gain a lot from his training and coaching.

Ashan Nirialla

Project Manager & Lead Business Analyst, Ceylon Solutions

I personally find training at APPTRA is unique. It is known fact that only via self study it would be hard to related the concepts to real time day today work that we involve with in the field of IT. The skill in bridging this gap seamlessly is what I found as special. Consequently, this became a distinct advantage not only to prepare for certifications, but also to perform your day today work better thereby being competitive as well. Therefore, I have no two words in recommending APPTRA holdings for trainings.

Dinuk Caldera

Lead Software Quality Engineering, ESSHVA TECHQ (Pvt.) Ltd.

Rumesh is a very professional and competent trainer, We had the opportunity to work with him on setting up a set of Agile training. He designed the customized program to satisfy our need and it was one of the best programs which got the highest ratings from the participants. Most importantly he effectively blends his practical knowledge and industry experience throughout the program, which makes the program very interactive and a memorable session. I would highly recommend Rumesh!
