Classromm confortable and enviroment. Instructir knowlegeable of course matarial but need to align to students working in the Canadian Federal Govt. ve US Federal govt.

The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.

The training was good but needed the basic skills of maximo before getting deep in the configuration of it.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.
