ExitCertified was a good platform to use to develop the relevant skills and we learned a lot on how to actually spin up the tools and services we were learning about.

I thought the labs and content were helpful in understanding the services associated with devops

Great training provided. One suggestion is mail out printed copy of course material and exercises to participants.

The instructor, Michalynn , was great! Class was well organized and the labs were helpful.

Enjoyed the course, could be a bit more dynamic but it's clearly spoke, and the slides as well.
