Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.

This was my second course through ExitCertified, and it continues to be a great way to learn and advance my career!

Study material provided is very helpful and covers hands-on labs in addition to theory. Instructor was very knowledgeable and very helpful in accommodating the participants requests/questions.

Well-executed course. I had to wait for the last minute to register for the course because of my org – their staff contacted me to ensure that I had a webcam and headset because they wouldn't be able to send me that in time for the start of class the next morning. They overnighted the webcam and headset and it arrived in the afternoon. It was not necessary but very much appreciated! The course was great and the instructor was a pro!

Took 3-day AWS DEV class with Ken Krueger teaching it, and I was very pleased with TechData ExitCertified overall - the Class materials and Knowledge/Interaction level from the Instructor (Ken K.) were excellent. Highly recommended, 5 Stars!
