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.

Very good class. The dev labs could use a little more notation. I would have liked an little more time available to complete labs after-hours and after the class is complete for review.

Instructor was knowledgeable and made the course fun. He knew how to convey the new material to students in simple and understandable manner. Used terminologies and apologies understood by all students in the v.classroom.

ExcitCertified(Tech Data) was great and I enjoyed my experience with them. Looking forward to taking more courses with them!

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!
