This is my first training with ExitCertified and I truly enjoyed this learning experience. I have taken other classes where the instructor solicited students for so much input it was unclear who was teaching the class. Other experiences were filled with so much personal chatter the instructor had to rush thru the course material. This instructor was very professional and actually delivered the materially.

There were minimal errors. The labs were great but the learning environment was difficult to navigate and certain components needed to stay on the screen that covered up parts of the presentation slides.

Vinay did an excellent job training our class. The information was useful and will come in handy in my work life.

This course helped me prepare for my AWS certifications. Highly recommended! Great instructors! My entire experience has been great in terms of signing up and taking the classes.

I enjoyed this class and the instructor did a very good job explaining the course material.
