Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Good content, worth taking if you are starting new to HDFS, it helps build your foundation

Instructor was engaging, very knowledgeable, and explained things clearly. Labs were helpful in getting used to the tools that were being taught. Course location (Atlanta Microtek facility) was very comfortably set up. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone learning a new skill. (I took the 3-day AWS Big Data training).

It was a pleasant experience from registration all through the course. I just wish they would have covered 100% of the material covered by the exam.

Its really nice to have the snacks available everyday. The staff is courteous and professional.
