This AWS training is very well designed and supported in the virtual lab. One of the best virtual lab experiences I have had, and I have had many. Sean the instructor made the material easy to grasp with his high-level drawings to supplement the slides.

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.

This was my second Tech Data course and I have been very satisficed with both of them.

Overall training is very well setup. Labs fully operational. Thanks for the hard work and training presentation.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)
