Fantastic instructor, good overview of content and ability to answer questions

Very educational and informative. Instructor was very Interactive so I had great learning. Presentation is very good. Venue is very convenient.

TX3181/3191 Courses. Really good course, highly recommended for TWS/D users.

I ended up taking an iMVP class; I was originally skeptical, as other online classes have had issues, but ExitCertified puts a little more effort into this, including making sure you have a good headset and camera to keep the classes more interactive, and they also provide better back-office support to their trainers than other vendors. I do recommend the iMVP over the classroom.

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
