Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Great instructor and good class material. Labs were helpful and put together very well.

Excellent remote class environment and it was a good experience of remote learning.

It was great content, some additional exam prep focus would have been nice. I believe everyone in the class has the goal of passing some AWS cert exams.

Had a good time taking course with ExitCertified. The Data Science course with Python was really laid out well and it was very easy to understand and navigate. The setup using Anaconda was really good and it was easy to follow along and do the practise exercises.
