Well organized course, supporting materials, and instructor. Good intro to AWS for various levels of participants - managers to developers.

ExitCertified has well experienced and professional instructors that make their training sessions a remarkable one.

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.

It was a pretty good general overview. To actually use this stuff, however, I recognize that there would need to be a further dive.

Thank you for the opportunity which let me enjoy the Core Spring class. Looking forward for more classes
