Good course. The lab environments were nice to work with. Though an included practice exam code would have been nice.

Great remote learning experience. Instruction was delivered with enthusiasm and expertise.

All material and communication about retrieving the material was timely and clear.

I took the AWS Essentials class and found the course very useful, understandable and well worth my time.

I took the AWS Technical Essentials and it was taught very well. It was very comprehensive and the instructor was fantastic. Already having familiarity with AWS, it was still taught at a level where I felt like it was worth taking before doing taking the AWS Developer course.
