Great instructor and structure. Only vendor that offered GTR also which was nice.

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

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

It was a good overview, but I feel like I need a lot more studying to be able to pass the test

Great instruction on AWS DevOps, even added more to the presentation for better understanding. The teacher was well informed and technically savvy to assist students on the fly through hiccups.
