Very informative and helpful. Provided lots of extra resources and explained the process clearly.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

The ExitCertified Labs were good; however, some of them didn't work completely. I think it was Lab3 where we were using S3 versioning that didn't work.

Content and Instructor were great. Just need more time during the day for labs.

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