First remote course and I am pleasantly surprised. Love the on site facilities in Ottawa, but the online course format was very well received.

The coursework is adequate to learn the materials covered, and the instructor did a very good job with presenting the material. Zoom worked out just fine as the conference calling platform of choice.

Sean was a fantastic instructor! He went beyond the material to help one understand!

Attended a Power BI class in McLean with this company. The instructor (Mike Staves) was very good and attentive to the groups' learning needs. The facility was very good and the staff was more than accommodating.

The entire AWS Essentials Course was great! ExitCertified supplied everything we need ahead of time and all went smoothly.
