Really nice and helpful staff! Office has well thought out interior design and plenty of snacks and drinks and coffee.

Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

I had a good and comfortable remote training experience. Look forward to more such trainings.

This is the first time I have taken course on ExitCertified. It's pretty good and it's very easy to learn and the layout is nice. The labwork is also presented pretty well.

Very informative and lots of information covered. Overall great information to use on the job.
