There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

If someone should need to contact you while you are in class, please have them call the center telephone number and leave a message with the receptionist.

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

The courses are very in-depth and useful to get a good idea of everything and get going from there.

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

The class is a good review of the services available in AWS.

In my mind. Myles Brown is an excellent instructor. His teaching approach agrees with me. No discernible stress about public speaking. Very engaging.

Enroll in the course offerings? Will enroll at the drop of a hat if approved. To ask mgmt to approve enrolment is another matter for me. Nothing to do with your company. Just a statement of fact.

Maybe a course on Google and MS Azure like this will be nice. If you have alternative options to mgmt, it is more likely that they shall have to choose one. Allow us to enroll.

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 felt the instructor had a wealth of knowledge. I would have liked to get access to the class materials sooner and have more time to access the labs. I would prefer to go through the lab in tandem with the materials
