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.

Course was well presented the supplied camera and head phones were plus in making the virtual course as real as it can get.

The courses are taught by experienced IT people with good advice in addition to the course materials.

Easy to navigate and good communication via email for preparation for classes.

It was great content, some additional exam prep focus would have been nice. I believe everyone in the class has the goal of passing some AWS cert exams.
