Kudos to EC, with excellent trainers and a highly satisfying learning experience. The environment was clean and welcoming, and the team was very accommodating.

Great instructor, but the format of the class could have been better. 7 hours of straight lecture followed by a small window of lab time isn't a good way to reinforce learned topics.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

Great instruction on AWS DevOps, even added more to the presentation for better understanding. The teacher was well informed and technically savvy to assist students on the fly through hiccups.

The AWS Training & Certification course was fantastic. Ryan Dymek was the instructor; he was awesome. I learned a lot in 3 days!
