The course was well organized and met my expectations, I have really learnt a lot that I think will help me going forward

This is my first training from ExitCertified. I would like to download course materials in pdf rather in some portal. It would be good to get a sandbox environment for labs as well.

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.)

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

I learned many new topics in this training and labs also very interesting to do.
