I had a good and comfortable remote training experience. Look forward to more such trainings.

I signed up with this with certain expectations of what I wanted to learn. What we got in class blew away my expectations and we got into more the nitty gritty of what skills would immediately apply to my job. I look forward to future classes with this instructor.

Very informative course about AWS, with an engaging instructor and plenty of materials to facilitate our learning
