Excellent class overall! The Instructor and the course material were the best so far, and I have taken a few AWS classes. I highly recommend it- Architecting on AWS.

Doing a very good job and courses offered are industry relevant.
The way courses are designed will give ample hands on exercises so that learner will be confident on implementing what he learned during the course.

ExitCertified was a good platform to use to develop the relevant skills and we learned a lot on how to actually spin up the tools and services we were learning about.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.
