This course gave me a clearer understanding of the AWS cloud architecture.

Both course material and instructor demonstrated a sound foundation on Maximo material

Instructor was great, course was mostly very good except for too much focus on pricing

This was effective way to provide a ton of information in a short time period.

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.
