Instructor was engaging, very knowledgeable, and explained things clearly. Labs were helpful in getting used to the tools that were being taught. Course location (Atlanta Microtek facility) was very comfortably set up. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone learning a new skill. (I took the 3-day AWS Big Data training).

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

Great personnel and facility. I just should have been told i was the only person physically in thr class, and that there was an option to attend the class remotely.

Great course led by a knowledgeable instructor. Would definitely recommend this course to any one I know that is looking to get an AWS Cert. The 4 day course was a great pace. So glad we had that extra day compared to the 3 day course. It really helped a lot and was really worth it. Thank you!

Excellent facilities, excellent staff.. and the coffee is good too! Thanks for helping to advance my career and the career of my colleagues!
