The course on Redshift was excellent! As a DBA/DA I found there is a quite a bit of learning for Oracle professionals to move into AWS.

I felt as if I was able to learn and retain a lot within just 3 days of training

very knowledgeable; presented in a interesting format; good insight into aws

Helpful and prompt with responses. I coordinated the scheduling of the class with them and, since day 1, all parties involved have been excellent! Knowledgeable, responsive, and accommodating.

Content and Instructor were great. Just need more time during the day for labs.
