Well planned presentations. Live Demo. Excellent labs to ensure comprehension.

I took the AWS Technical Essentials and it was taught very well. It was very comprehensive and the instructor was fantastic. Already having familiarity with AWS, it was still taught at a level where I felt like it was worth taking before doing taking the AWS Developer course.

This is a great way to learn online. Courses are well structured and clearly explained with very dedicated staff.

Warm greeting and excellent help. The eating area is always clean and well stocked

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.
