This course was an excellent introduction to AWS. The instructor was engaging, pausing to answer questions, and assisting students when necessary. I look forward to completing the AWS Architect course.

I like the classes delivered by starting with the basic concepts and going through each of them in detail along with their demo on the IBM platform. i like that the classes were very planned and organized.Also, the material provided was very good

Instructor was great, course was mostly very good except for too much focus on pricing

Good course that filled in alot of gaps for me and Mark, the instructor, was excellent.

Course material and instructor was excellent, one of the labs didnt work very well.
