This was an excellent and very informative class. I will recommend it to others. Thank you.

The course and labs were well organized and performed flawlessly. They made sure that all the information was timely relayed to the students.

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

Had a good time taking course with ExitCertified. The Data Science course with Python was really laid out well and it was very easy to understand and navigate. The setup using Anaconda was really good and it was easy to follow along and do the practise exercises.

I took a 1-day AWS Essential. It was too short and too much materials. It is a good overview and exposure overall. I like the lab materials, and the console worked flawlessly without any issue. Good preparation!!
