We are are very proud to present this amazing three-day SAFe certification course for Release Train Engineers as an Online course.

This is a unique opportunity to certify as an RTE together with one of the key contributors to the course curriculum and SAFe Fellow/SPCT Carl Starendal. As an employee at Scaled Agile, he was directly involved in the creation of the RTE course and is also a highly acclaimed trainer and has a background as an RTE himself.

Attendees explore the skills needed to facilitate and enable end-to-end value delivery through Agile Release Trains (ARTs)—and learn how to build a high-performing ART through servant leadership and coaching—by becoming a SAFe Release Train Engineer (RTE). During this three-day course, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the role and responsibilities of an RTE in the SAFe enterprise.

Through experiential learning, attendees will examine the RTE role in a Lean-Agile transformation. They will learn how to facilitate ART processes and execution, coach leaders, teams, and Scrum Masters in new processes and mindsets. They will also learn how to prepare, plan and execute a Program Increment (PI) planning event, the primarily enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization.


The following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SAFe Release Train Engineer (RTE) certification exam: Hold at least one current SAFe certification & have launched or participated in at least one ART and one PI.



  • High quality training delivered by SAFe Fellow and SPCT Carl Starendal

  • Membership in the “We Are Movement” slack community

  • One-year membership to the SAFe Community Platform

  • Attendee PDF workbook

  • Certification exam for the SAFe Release Train Engineer Certification (RTE)


The online Implementing SAFe course will take a total of 28 hours online spread out over four days. The learning takes place during one week over four days (Monday-Thursday) divided into two sessions with one before a 1 hour lunch-break and one after lunch each day. We are also offering an optional “after course” online meetup and lean coffe for all attendees and instructors two weeks after the course to help anyone who is studying for the included RTE exam.

The course takes place in Zoom and we will use Slack for chat before, during and after the course, and for whiteboarding and exercises we will use the application Miro. All attendees need a fast internet connection and a laptop or stationary computer with a web camera and microphone/speakers to attend.
