The course provided information that I was interested in from a architecture point of view.

Friendly, easy to use interface. Was very helpful for labs and following along with class material.

Program was well done from initial invitation to actual class and follow-up

First remote course and I am pleasantly surprised. Love the on site facilities in Ottawa, but the online course format was very well received.

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