ExitCertified was a great. They gave me all the materials and information I needed ahead of time to prepare for the course.

The tool provided to practice the course teachings is very functional and easy to use.

great class and packed with material, would have lived to spread it more into many days but overall very informative.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.
