I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.

Content and Instructor were great. Just need more time during the day for labs.

I recommend this class to anyone who is interested in reporting and analytics!

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

Great first experience with ExitCertified. I look forward to many more trainings.
