The training is very helpful. The lab is very well written and easy to follow. The instructor is very knowledgeable.

The presenter was knowledgeable and professional. The duration of the course, the pace and venue was suitable also

Everything about this course went very smoothly. AWS materials and the laps were well presented and integrated. Thomas Canino and Ruben Lopez did a great job as instructor / moderator respectively. Loved the presentation style of Thomas together with his depth of knowledge of the topics and materials. Very Well Done!

I felt the instructor had a wealth of knowledge. I would have liked to get access to the class materials sooner and have more time to access the labs. I would prefer to go through the lab in tandem with the materials

The way the instructor explained the topics in provided module is excellent. Even though I have small knowledge in z/OS, I can understand easily the lessons.
