I am overall very impressed with ExitCertified/Tech Data regarding the Spring Core class outline and iMVP delivery format.

I learned a lot of directly usable skills from Tech Data. It will make an immediate impact in our work center.

One of the best organized and thoughtful learning sessions I've attended, thank you!

The course and labs were well organized and performed flawlessly. They made sure that all the information was timely relayed to the students.

I took the AWS Technical Essentials and it was taught very well. It was very comprehensive and the instructor was fantastic. Already having familiarity with AWS, it was still taught at a level where I felt like it was worth taking before doing taking the AWS Developer course.
