Course was very informative and the instructor was knowledgeable. It was a very good introductory course to AWS.

Good job coping with the "new" training, of having video learning in a group setting.

Class & instructor was very knowledgeable. I can honestly say I received a lot of information that I am retaining for my exam. Material was taught in the right tone for IT and non IT students.

It's good for developers and those with technical backgrounds, but not for business personnel.

A nice, albeit dense, course that runs through a lot of key AWS services and concepts.
