ExitCertified education was extremely helpful for preparing me for the AWS certifications.

Class had good pace, the curriculum appeared to focus on exam prep (which was good), the lab worked very well except for one small instance.

Really nice and helpful staff! Office has well thought out interior design and plenty of snacks and drinks and coffee.

Exactly what we needed for our organization, at the right time, at the right price. We'll be back!

Great! Teacher was awesome! Really engaging and that is hard to do with IT related things.
