I've always enjoyed classes through ExitCertified. Great group of instructors and they have a great platform to teach on both in person and online (iMVP).

ExcitCertified(Tech Data) was great and I enjoyed my experience with them. Looking forward to taking more courses with them!

Well organized support staff. Second class that I have taken through Tech Data and found it more than a good use of my time.

I really enjoyed the Architecting on AWS class. The class was very informative about all the AWS tools that we can use and will need when we go to the cloud.

Very good overview and Intro to AWS. Just the right amount of information.
