Facility was well laid out. Well stocked break room & bathroom within close walk. Also, the woman working the front desk/professional support was very helpful and professional, and responsive to our requests.

I would certainly go through ExitCertified again for future trainings.

Es recomendable, pero no puedo hablar sobre todos los cursos, solo el que tome que fue el de Spark trainning, en especifico ese curso, estuvo muy bueno, la verdad.

I ended up taking an iMVP class; I was originally skeptical, as other online classes have had issues, but ExitCertified puts a little more effort into this, including making sure you have a good headset and camera to keep the classes more interactive, and they also provide better back-office support to their trainers than other vendors. I do recommend the iMVP over the classroom.

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

Awesome instructor with in-depth knowledge and the ability to present in a meaningful & understandable way. This course will provide a solid foundation within DataStage that can be used immediately. I highly recommend this course.
