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.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

The entire AWS Essentials Course was great! ExitCertified supplied everything we need ahead of time and all went smoothly.

The course was very thorough and the instructor ensured that all the students were on the same page.
