Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

This was my first course through ExitCertified. From my initial browsing of their website for courses, assistance getting the course procured for my agency, and finally the course experience itself, I couldn't be more pleased.

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

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.

Great remote learning experience. Instruction was delivered with enthusiasm and expertise.
