I really enjoyed the course. It was well designed given that it was online. I would recommend that the higher level courses be taken on-site, but this course was very thorough for those looking to get started with an AWS Certification.

Awesome instructor with in-depth knowledge and the ability to present in a meaningful & understandable way. This course will provide a solid foundation within DataStage that can be used immediately. I highly recommend this course.

Bill has been outstanding instructor. He has right balance of knowledge and skills to navigate this entire process in a timely manner. Thanks a lot Bill.

Informative class with great instructure who was able to walk through the course material, answer all questions, and give great examples.
