It was an excellent experience starting from preparations and customizations of course content that fits to our needs.

The exit certified aws course provided a good introduction to the tools available on aws.

The whole process was very good - I even had trouble with my registration and the support was excellent. Micah was a great person to communicate with after I registered as well and was a huge help.

Team is very good to organize things, reply immediately to coordinate and advise.

I am overall very impressed with ExitCertified/Tech Data regarding the Spring Core class outline and iMVP delivery format.
