This was an excellent class to get me up to speed quickly on AWS solution Architect concepts.

Excellent course. Ruben Lopez is an outstanding instructor. Learned tons of information. Would recommend ExitCertified to anyone!

Facilities were very clean, coffee was nice to have, snack selection was refreshing

ExitCertified was a good platform to use to develop the relevant skills and we learned a lot on how to actually spin up the tools and services we were learning about.

There were minimal errors. The labs were great but the learning environment was difficult to navigate and certain components needed to stay on the screen that covered up parts of the presentation slides.
