The platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Great tool for learning

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

The training was good but needed the basic skills of maximo before getting deep in the configuration of it.

Thank Tech Data for sponsoring this course you really take care of your partners.

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.
