Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

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

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

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

Great instructor, clear and concise course. Labs were easy to follow and worked perfectly.
