Very educational and enjoyable. Format was excellent; recommend to anyone who wants to get serious about learning AWS.

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

Lab infraestructure is very suitable and works pretty good help to understand better the concepts exposed during the training.

The instructor is very good and very accommodating and excellent in answering participant's questions.
