First remote course and I am pleasantly surprised. Love the on site facilities in Ottawa, but the online course format was very well received.

Team is very good to organize things, reply immediately to coordinate and advise.

Great instruction on AWS DevOps, even added more to the presentation for better understanding. The teacher was well informed and technically savvy to assist students on the fly through hiccups.

Good training course and good delivery. Thanks for answering the questions

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes
