The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.

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

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth
