I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

Very good and easy system, Azure pass registration process should be slightly better with not having to get a new outlook account.

Instructor was very knowledgeable and provided instructions worked well in the virtual labs and zoom sessions.

An excellent course for beginners looking to take their Cloud practitioner exam and getting the fundamental knowledge about AWS

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