Tommy was a great instructor. We relied on this class to develop our understanding, and we were very happy with the result.

ExitCertified team was excelling at presenting the course material and they often went the extra mile to make sure everyone understood all the elements of the course.

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

The course material was laid out logically. There are a lot of aws services and concepts to cover in the three days but overall was a good learning experience.

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.
