I was very pleased to be part of this lecture and getting experience with ExitCrtified platform

Course Material was well presented and labs were interesting and hand on experience

Great instructor and really good course material. If we could have had more time, that would have been helpful. Especially learning in a virtual environment. I think 3-day training was good but zoom fatigue and learning online can become extremely tiring and make it difficult to retain information.

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.

While all courses have their challenges in presentation and execution, I found this to be one of the best I have attended.
