Michael was incredibly knowledgeable and presented the material is an easy to understand manner!

AZ-300 course experience was good . Eylem Uysal was very good, the best instructor and i had really good experience attending course and classes with Eylem.

Better arrangement was made to make sure we receive necessary tools to attend the course days before the date, this saves time to join.

This is a great way to learn online. Courses are well structured and clearly explained with very dedicated staff.
