I really enjoyed the Architecting on AWS class. The class was very informative about all the AWS tools that we can use and will need when we go to the cloud.

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.

Great instructor, but the format of the class could have been better. 7 hours of straight lecture followed by a small window of lab time isn't a good way to reinforce learned topics.

Vinay did an excellent job training our class. The information was useful and will come in handy in my work life.

Doing a very good job and courses offered are industry relevant.
The way courses are designed will give ample hands on exercises so that learner will be confident on implementing what he learned during the course.
