Classromm confortable and enviroment. Instructir knowlegeable of course matarial but need to align to students working in the Canadian Federal Govt. ve US Federal govt.

I ended up taking an iMVP class; I was originally skeptical, as other online classes have had issues, but ExitCertified puts a little more effort into this, including making sure you have a good headset and camera to keep the classes more interactive, and they also provide better back-office support to their trainers than other vendors. I do recommend the iMVP over the classroom.

Very organized and provides a ton of information both in class and for self study. I highly recommend ExitCertified for AWS training.

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

Good training. The instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions with a professional demeanor. Course material was comprehensive and I felt I had a solid understanding of the topic after the training concluded.
