The material and instruction were well paced and understandable. The labs provided good hands on experience with AWS services and I look forward to taking more training with ExitCertified.

The course and labs were well organized and performed flawlessly. They made sure that all the information was timely relayed to the students.

Interesting real world examples and scenarios covered in the training, brought some new perspectives to light.

the class was setup very well and I feel that I will be able to take what I have learned and use.

the lab work is relevant to our enterprise projects. Instructor's content delivery(speech) is great, nice pauses to allow students to assimilate the data.
