Very informative and helpful. Provided lots of extra resources and explained the process clearly.

I was really happy with the overall experience of attending a remote course through ExitCeritfied.

Exceptional training provided! Ruben was extremely knowledgeable on the information he provided. A lot of the information on the databases portion of the training I did not understand, as I do not have a lot of experience in that area, but the rest of the cloud training provided was exceptional.

Overall good experience considering the situation we are all in. Could use more hands on experience

My 5-day training with ExitCertified has been very fruitful. The knowledge imparted would go a long way to add value to my job. Thank you ExitCertified.
