Great training company. Use them. Worth every penny. Instructors are great, equipment is great, system is great.

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.

I recommend this class to anyone who is interested in reporting and analytics!

The ExitCertified Labs were good; however, some of them didn't work completely. I think it was Lab3 where we were using S3 versioning that didn't work.

This course was very high quality and I'm excited to see what other course offerings are available in the future
