Exit certified is a great learning facility that I would definitely recommend to up and coming movers in the IT business and also to the more seniors work force.

Virtual delivery and coordination of the course was great. It had to be rescheduled several times by ExitCertified was always on top of things.

Learnt new things on AWS DEVOPS side from Tutor Ryan. Happy that he was able to assist on our questions.
