I was very satisfied about how the course was organized. Sean Did a very good work

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

The class covered the concepts needed for the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification.

They were very good. They made sure everyone was able to get into the training and got all of the material needed for class.
