Class was very informative, although one lab didnt but will try again later

Excellent facilities, excellent staff.. and the coffee is good too! Thanks for helping to advance my career and the career of my colleagues!

The entire AWS Essentials Course was great! ExitCertified supplied everything we need ahead of time and all went smoothly.

I like the instructor teaching method and well preparedness for the course.

Exceptional training provided! Ruben was extremely knowledgeable on the information he provided. A lot of the information on the databases portion of the training I did not understand, as I do not have a lot of experience in that area, but the rest of the cloud training provided was exceptional.
