It depends on your requirements, your role in your company, and your depth of knowledge. The good news about many of our learning paths, you can start from the fundamentals to highly specialized training.

Do you provide hands-on training and exercises in an actual lab environment?

Lab access is dependent on the vendor and the type of training you sign up for. However, many of our top vendors will provide lab access to students to test and practice. The course description will specify lab access.

Will you customize the training for our company’s specific needs and goals?

We will work with you to identify training needs and areas of growth.  We offer a variety of training methods, such as private group training, on-site of your choice, and virtually. We provide courses and certifications that are aligned with your business goals.

How do I get started with certification?

Getting started on a certification pathway depends on your goals and the vendor you choose to get certified in.

Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

Bill Brightman was a great instructor. He explained the concepts clearly, used helpful analogies for describing abstract concepts, and pointed out tips along the way for those of us who will be taking the certification exam.

I have taken a few classes now (and with different vendors), and this was one of the better ones that I have taken. The topic is the topic; however, Ruben is what made this class great. He was able to answer all of our questions and was very approachable. Well done Sir.

I am looking to get into the world of AWS and I hope to take more classes with ExitCertified.

Instructor was very informative. The class structure is very helpful and it helps understand even for someone who has never used AWS before.

Sean is very knowledgeable and SME in the AWS Cloud Architect space. He made this training very interactive and fun for all the participation. I was very impressed with his explanation on the questions, or topics.

Ruben is a super great instructor. Knows the material inside and out and has the ability to make the material interesting. I learned a ton from this course!
