It was an informative session. Look forward to advance my knowledge on AWS in future.

Not really clear what this mean, therefore I can not actually provide insight.

The material was excellent, well laid out and the instructor was highly knowledgeable in material and able to present it easily.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Joel Rosenblum is an excellent instructor. Would gladly take more courses he taught. Extremely knowledgeable with the content and real world experience with the tech. Gotcha issues provided by him to look for in tech were very useful. Very friendly and available during and after class time.

Tom Peters was very helpful initially and once voucher was confirmed valid. Tom P required Kyle Banas to approve my voucher that was earned for selling certain quantity of M365 licenses. Request confirmation voucher was valid less than 3 months from notification. Tom P CC'd Kyle B on email to confirm. Kyle to several weeks and MANY email requests without ever responding to request. Tom P eventually approved the voucher.

Content was excellent. Labs and lab environment was excellent.
