Setup for the training was easy and participants were mostly provided with the necessary things for continued learning, however, a couple people in my class dealt with technical issues with their virtual machines in the virtual training.

Very prompt during an issue that occurred, and accidentally contacted an individual on their vacation, but they quickly pointed me to another individual who got my issue resolved.

The format and presentation using the iMVP software worked as well.

The exit certified aws course provided a good introduction to the tools available on aws.

Instructor was engaging, very knowledgeable, and explained things clearly. Labs were helpful in getting used to the tools that were being taught. Course location (Atlanta Microtek facility) was very comfortably set up. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone learning a new skill. (I took the 3-day AWS Big Data training).

Good course content and had mixed reviews with the instructors. Some were poor, some were really great.
