The course contents were well laid out and the instructor was great. I would love to take more courses in the future with ExitCertified

ExitCertified class worked well and provided good starting point for Architecting on AWS

The course was informative and easy to follow, but only skims the surface of the AWS services and usages.

Very thorough and well-presented class. Pace of the class was perfect and labs offered great opportunity to practice material.

- able to organize and concentrate (in relatively short interval of time) a lot of training material.
- setting up a good connection to Virtual Machine and good functionality of the necessary applications - in parallel with a good ZOOM session with instructor and participants.
- able to accommodate big numbers of participants
- provides additional course material ( like PDF manuals)
