J`aime l´environnement, la façon dont les labs sont organises. Sauf que je ne peux pas faire de click droit sur ces pages. Pour les labs çà aurait été utile.

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

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

I enjoyed this class and the instructor did a very good job explaining the course material.

Learnt new things on AWS DEVOPS side from Tutor Ryan. Happy that he was able to assist on our questions.
