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

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.

Well structured, easy to understand exercises. Some are more complex and need more context in order to fully understand.

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

This was an excellent class to get me up to speed quickly on AWS solution Architect concepts.
