Study material provided is very helpful and covers hands-on labs in addition to theory. Instructor was very knowledgeable and very helpful in accommodating the participants requests/questions.

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.

Well structured, easy to understand exercises. Some are more complex and need more context in order to fully understand.

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.

I just finished the 3 days training on AWS Solution Architect course instructed by Seid. He is very knowledgeable. He engaged the students and he is very friendly. The labs were well planned. I strongly suggest people to take the course.
