Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

I ended up taking an iMVP class; I was originally skeptical, as other online classes have had issues, but ExitCertified puts a little more effort into this, including making sure you have a good headset and camera to keep the classes more interactive, and they also provide better back-office support to their trainers than other vendors. I do recommend the iMVP over the classroom.

Learnt new things on AWS DEVOPS side from Tutor Ryan. Happy that he was able to assist on our questions.

This course helped me prepare for my AWS certifications. Highly recommended! Great instructors! My entire experience has been great in terms of signing up and taking the classes.

Very organized. I like how they keep me informed and prepared for training. I would certainly go to ExitCertified (Tech Data) as a training delivery platform/company again.
