I took the AWS Technical Essentials and it was taught very well. It was very comprehensive and the instructor was fantastic. Already having familiarity with AWS, it was still taught at a level where I felt like it was worth taking before doing taking the AWS Developer course.

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

Very good training! The instructor is a specialist and the material is great!

I am impressed with the level of attention and swift support from ExitCertified. Great work

Lab infraestructure is very suitable and works pretty good help to understand better the concepts exposed during the training.
