I was really happy with the overall experience of attending a remote course through ExitCeritfied.

Pretty concise course mainly covering AWS Redshift while briefly introducing practical use examples with other services for companies.

The course was very thorough and the instructor ensured that all the students were on the same page.

The course materials are outstanding and the instructor was friendly, focused and had command of the course.

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.
