Class had good pace, the curriculum appeared to focus on exam prep (which was good), the lab worked very well except for one small instance.

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

I found ExitCertified by accident and have not been disappointed. The instructors are engaging and the material goes beyond teaching the test.

The course material and labs were written in very easy to understand format. This is the 1st time that all my labs worked flawlessly. Kudos
