The lady at the front really nice. Everthing was always stocked up: Helpful

ExcitCertified(Tech Data) was great and I enjoyed my experience with them. Looking forward to taking more courses with them!

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

I received a link for automated set up. I do not like automated set up links since there's always a chance of compromise.

Very good platform iMVP. I did Architecting on AWS from home and the quality of the material and the labs. Very committed and experienced instructor too.

Didin't give 5 stars because I found the material was too much for 3 days. Too many new concepts, products and strategies to learn in such a little time. I'll have to check all the material and test everything again to be sure all this knowledge is not lost!
