This is my first training with ExitCertified and I truly enjoyed this learning experience. I have taken other classes where the instructor solicited students for so much input it was unclear who was teaching the class. Other experiences were filled with so much personal chatter the instructor had to rush thru the course material. This instructor was very professional and actually delivered the materially.

A must take course if you want to be an AWS cloud architect. It touches almost all the essential services in AWS

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

Great facility with good selection of drinks and small snacks. Equipment also worked flawlessly.

Very well organized course and labs were clear. Instructor Sean Mohseni was an excellent. Will highly recommend this course/vendor and instructor to others.
