The course was overall very good, I would recommend breaking some topics into their own respective courses such as cloudformation as 1 lecture does not do it justice.

The Course material and lab infrastructure and the overall Experience is very good.

This was an excellent class to get me up to speed quickly on AWS solution Architect concepts.

The training was excellent which is what I expecting for Amazon software training.

This was a wonderful course hosted by ExitCertified and I am MUCH more prepared and knowledgeable on what I need to do in my job working in AWS in order to be prepared to consult with my customers and deploy their software in the cloud.
