I would highly recommend this instructor. But would appreciate the Actual Slide material to refresh. Also exam prep doc would be an advantage

Very good platform iMVP. I did Architecting on AWS from home and the quality of the material and the labs. Very committed and experienced instructor too.

Didin't give 5 stars because I found the material was too much for 3 days. Too many new concepts, products and strategies to learn in such a little time. I'll have to check all the material and test everything again to be sure all this knowledge is not lost!

The instructor was very good. He had a terrific temperament and never seemed to get tired. He was very patient with some of the participants and their lack of experience.

very knowledgeable; presented in a interesting format; good insight into aws

The software installation instructions needs to be more clear. We spent a lot time on installing and setting up the environment.
