This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

The material was excellent, well laid out and the instructor was highly knowledgeable in material and able to present it easily.

Good course that covers all aspects of DB2. Gives very good starting point to enable anyone to work efficiently within DB2 environment.

Very organized. I like how they keep me informed and prepared for training. I would certainly go to ExitCertified (Tech Data) as a training delivery platform/company again.

This course was like drinking from a fire hose without the option to swallow. While the course covered an array of topics that I believe are important to anyone desiring to dive into AWS, it had little room where the participants could digest what they received and maintain pace. It is highly unlikely that after reviewing the materials in presentation form at top speeds and trying to navigate the labs, a good amount is retained. The labs really amount to seeing if you can follow what was written and do each step and not so much of seeing if you can apply what you know. I did enjoy the class but only after I accepted the fact that it was an excellent way to get started and it will be required for me to circle back repeatedly to get a working understanding of the materials. I would recommend more interaction with the attendees throughout the course rather than just during the true/false question session. Having said that I do plan to take more training, but its my opinion that more is learned and retained when the attendees are engaged. I also thought that the study and lab materials should have been more flexible with an annotation option.
