I found the IBM HACMP course to be very good. The instructor was top notch!

Took 3-day AWS DEV class with Ken Krueger teaching it, and I was very pleased with TechData ExitCertified overall - the Class materials and Knowledge/Interaction level from the Instructor (Ken K.) were excellent. Highly recommended, 5 Stars!

The software installation instructions needs to be more clear. We spent a lot time on installing and setting up the environment.

ExitCertified(Tech Data) is very good in organizing these courses. Providing a good environment and a very knowledgeable instructors.

Very well organized. All the course documents, presentations, meetings worked well.
