Had great paid experiences, the free experience was not a waste of time, it provided the overview AWS that I needed to get started.

I really enjoyed the course. It was well designed given that it was online. I would recommend that the higher level courses be taken on-site, but this course was very thorough for those looking to get started with an AWS Certification.

Great Class and Chris was a very knowledgeable instructor. Hoping it prepped me well enough for upcoming exam!

The software installation instructions needs to be more clear. We spent a lot time on installing and setting up the environment.

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