Well organized course, supporting materials, and instructor. Good intro to AWS for various levels of participants - managers to developers.

Great training platform, signing up for courses is made easy and a great customer support team is there to answer any question and provide assistance during application. The course was great overall, instructor explained everything throughly and quickly answer any incoming questions.

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.

I would highly recommend this instructor. But would appreciate the Actual Slide material to refresh. Also exam prep doc would be an advantage

The Course material and lab infrastructure and the overall Experience is very good.
