The exit certified aws course provided a good introduction to the tools available on aws.

They were very good. They made sure everyone was able to get into the training and got all of the material needed for class.

The labs and course material gave me valuable insights into cloud security architecture

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.
