I've always enjoyed classes through ExitCertified. Great group of instructors and they have a great platform to teach on both in person and online (iMVP).

Lab infraestructure is very suitable and works pretty good help to understand better the concepts exposed during the training.

I really enjoyed the course. It was well designed given that it was online. I would recommend that the higher level courses be taken on-site, but this course was very thorough for those looking to get started with an AWS Certification.

The training experience is nice, would recommend to take Kevin's courses.

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.
