Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

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

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

I liked the pace of the course. I like that I have more than instance to use the lab.
