Very informative and lots of information covered. Overall great information to use on the job.

This course was very high quality and I'm excited to see what other course offerings are available in the future

Lot of material was covered in 3 days. Would be nice to have some more time to process the lab sections, especially.

This course gave me a clearer understanding of the AWS cloud architecture.

The ExitCertified Labs were good; however, some of them didn't work completely. I think it was Lab3 where we were using S3 versioning that didn't work.
