Pretty concise course mainly covering AWS Redshift while briefly introducing practical use examples with other services for companies.

Your team appears to be VERY experienced and can present and discuss ALL topics. I am very pleased with my learning experience with ExitCertified. Thank you!

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.

Strong hands on labs. Frustrating that materials aren't easily accessible for later review or consumption.

I really enjoy the subject matter presented in this course. The instructor was very well verse and presented the material in a easy to understand and professional way... Great job!
