Very good class. The dev labs could use a little more notation. I would have liked an little more time available to complete labs after-hours and after the class is complete for review.

ExitCertified education was extremely helpful for preparing me for the AWS certifications.

The material was excellent, well laid out and the instructor was highly knowledgeable in material and able to present it easily.

Fantastic and great platform for training! Would definitely take another course with them!
