The course material and labs were written in very easy to understand format. This is the 1st time that all my labs worked flawlessly. Kudos

Had a smooth training experience with ExitCertified. The trainer conducted the training smoothly and all the topics were covered with lab exercises.

ExitCertified team was excelling at presenting the course material and they often went the extra mile to make sure everyone understood all the elements of the course.

Excellent class and instructors. Pace was a good mixture of challenging without being overwhelming.

It could have been better because we had lesser time for main topics of microservices as compare to other topics.
