The course material was laid out logically. There are a lot of aws services and concepts to cover in the three days but overall was a good learning experience.

Better arrangement was made to make sure we receive necessary tools to attend the course days before the date, this saves time to join.

Doing a very good job and courses offered are industry relevant.
The way courses are designed will give ample hands on exercises so that learner will be confident on implementing what he learned during the course.

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.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.
