well organized and designed course. Tommy is good teacher and answer our all the questions

The courses are very in-depth and useful to get a good idea of everything and get going from there.

This is my first training with ExitCertified and I truly enjoyed this learning experience. I have taken other classes where the instructor solicited students for so much input it was unclear who was teaching the class. Other experiences were filled with so much personal chatter the instructor had to rush thru the course material. This instructor was very professional and actually delivered the materially.

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

Very organized. I like how they keep me informed and prepared for training. I would certainly go to ExitCertified (Tech Data) as a training delivery platform/company again.
