Instructor, Training material & span of the training is neatly planned.

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

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

Very good material, the instructor was clear explaining the topics, and the labs were easy to follow it.

The labs and course material gave me valuable insights into cloud security architecture
