Excellent class overall! The Instructor and the course material were the best so far, and I have taken a few AWS classes. I highly recommend it- Architecting on AWS.

Ken Kruger was very detailed on the AWS topics and very grateful to TechData ExitCertified.Class materials and interaction doing the class was
very informative and thoroughly enjoyed it.Very Highly recommended for everyone who want to make their career with cloud.

The course material and the instructor were very good. This course met all my requirements.

Very good course materials. Maybe could have included a bit more on something like FPO but otherwise very good. Very good instructor and environment.
