The AWS Solution Architect Associate class is well organized. The instructor was professional and knowledgable. I would recommend this to co-workers as well as friends.

ExcitCertified(Tech Data) was great and I enjoyed my experience with them. Looking forward to taking more courses with them!

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Course Material was well presented and labs were interesting and hand on experience
