This is my first training from ExitCertified. I would like to download course materials in pdf rather in some portal. It would be good to get a sandbox environment for labs as well.

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.

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

The Course material and lab infrastructure and the overall Experience is very good.

From the first contact with James in sales, all the way through today, two courses later, ExitCertified has been great!
