ExitCertified was a great. They gave me all the materials and information I needed ahead of time to prepare for the course.

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

Class was easy to sign up for and ExitCertified provided very good communication

Overall ExitCertified is a great training provider and the remote learning is as effective as in person.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth
