Pass, and you are a Certified SAFe® Agilist (by Scaled Agile Inc.). The exam is difficult, so take the course with a experienced provider like Grow-Lean, that will prepare you to pass.

The SAFe® framework wraps principles from Scrum, Kanban, XP, Product Development Flow, Kanban,and DevOps, and adds ceremonies, roles and artifacts to provide a context for agile at Scale.
