Ruben was very energetic in presenting the course material which kept our attention. Thanks!

Very educational and enjoyable. Format was excellent; recommend to anyone who wants to get serious about learning AWS.

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

The coursework is adequate to learn the materials covered, and the instructor did a very good job with presenting the material. Zoom worked out just fine as the conference calling platform of choice.

Instructions were clear, lab exercises were pertinent and self-explanatory, topic was thoroughly covered in the presented course material.
