The labs and course material gave me valuable insights into cloud security architecture

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

it was good and very informative. Instructure covered everything in detail.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.
