Great overview of the AWS architecture. It covered most of the products and building blocks to design in AWS.

I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.

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

We went through AWS slides with the instructor answering our questions and providing his personal expertise. overall very positive experience

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.
