Great overview of the AWS architecture. It covered most of the products and building blocks to design in AWS.

Excellent course. Ruben Lopez is an outstanding instructor. Learned tons of information. Would recommend ExitCertified to anyone!

Very organized. I like how they keep me informed and prepared for training. I would certainly go to ExitCertified (Tech Data) as a training delivery platform/company again.

Good training. Please include more labs if you can for better hands-on experience.

I felt as if I was able to learn and retain a lot within just 3 days of training
