They did a wonderful job facilitating this training. Everything worked as expected.

Had a good time taking course with ExitCertified. The Data Science course with Python was really laid out well and it was very easy to understand and navigate. The setup using Anaconda was really good and it was easy to follow along and do the practise exercises.

Should allow student to download the software of the e-Textbook though out agency can't give the permition to download file out of the firewall.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

The instructor, Michalynn , was great! Class was well organized and the labs were helpful.
