I took the AWS Technical Essentials and it was taught very well. It was very comprehensive and the instructor was fantastic. Already having familiarity with AWS, it was still taught at a level where I felt like it was worth taking before doing taking the AWS Developer course.

The instructor is very good and very accommodating and excellent in answering participant's questions.

I like the instructor teaching method and well preparedness for the course.

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.

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