Overview

SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) – the highest certification in Agile and SAFe

SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) are change agents who combine their technical knowledge of SAFe with an intrinsic motivation to improve the company's software and systems development processes. SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) play a critical role in successfully leading and implementing SAFe. As a SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) you must be trained for your new role, and acquire the skills and tools needed to execute your responsibilities as well as to coach and teach others to implement and support the change. The best way to achieve this is to follow the leading and implementing SAFe training with SAFe 5.1 Program Consultant (SPC) certification.
