The method of training and delivery via Zoom was excellent. The Labs were very well planned and organized. The material could have been organized a little better.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.

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

Awesome course. well coordinated and taught. Brett is an excellent instructor.

This is my second class through ExitCertified and I have been pleased with the access to learn remotely.
