I was very pleased with all aspects of ExitCertified delivery of this course

I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.

Think this course can be longer, as there are so many details and services that need to be discussed.

The course was extremely well presented and the content is very logical and easy to understand.

Training is comprehensive across all boundaries. The delivery was pleasant and evoked usable conversation.
