I'm very happy with the instructor, Pete Durst. He is very knowledgeable... I don't think there's any aspect of AWS, security or other, that he's not aware of! Seems like he knows the entire suite of AWS products inside and out. Very outstanding instructor who provided many real-world examples and expounded upon every topic we covered to include tips and extra info.

Ruben was highly knowledgeable in the subject matter and made it a point to present the course content in a logical and digestible manner. He was able to explain concepts and answer related questions without hesitation.

I feel far more confident in the path for exam preparation thanks to this class. Well done to all involved!

Ruben delivered the material in an engaging, entertaining manner. His command of the material was excellent.

I really enjoyed this course and would definitely like to enroll in additional courses!
