Great course, the labs were the best part of the course because it helped the material and information really sink in. We did have issues with one of the labs not being correct though

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

Its really nice to have the snacks available everyday. The staff is courteous and professional.

Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

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).
