I was familiar with some knowledge on AWS Cloud, however the instructor Lopez explained stuff that made it easy to understand. He was very knowledgeable with the information he provided during class

The training class was very well organized and the instructor, Joel, did an excellent job. He was very knowledgable and engaging and was very good at making things make sense.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.
