J`aime l´environnement, la façon dont les labs sont organises. Sauf que je ne peux pas faire de click droit sur ces pages. Pour les labs çà aurait été utile.

I felt as if I was able to learn and retain a lot within just 3 days of training

Virtual delivery and coordination of the course was great. It had to be rescheduled several times by ExitCertified was always on top of things.

Kudos to EC, with excellent trainers and a highly satisfying learning experience. The environment was clean and welcoming, and the team was very accommodating.
