Class was easy to sign up for and ExitCertified provided very good communication
The labs and course material gave me valuable insights into cloud security architecture
The training was great . But i expected some of the Networking concepts would be covered in this certification .
The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.
Good training material and good instruction. More time needs to be provided for the lab work.
