ExcitCertified(Tech Data) was great and I enjoyed my experience with them. Looking forward to taking more courses with them!

Setup for the training was easy and participants were mostly provided with the necessary things for continued learning, however, a couple people in my class dealt with technical issues with their virtual machines in the virtual training.

Loved the training format, content and the exercises. Jemma is a great Instructor.

Great training company. Use them. Worth every penny. Instructors are great, equipment is great, system is great.

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.
