How do I pay for a class?

You can pay at the time of registration using credit card (Mastercard/Visa/American Express) cheque or PO.

What if I have training credits?

ExitCertified honors all savings programs from the partners we work with. ExitCertified also offers training credits across multiple partners through our FLEX Account.

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning. There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

I ended up taking an iMVP class; I was originally skeptical, as other online classes have had issues, but ExitCertified puts a little more effort into this, including making sure you have a good headset and camera to keep the classes more interactive, and they also provide better back-office support to their trainers than other vendors. I do recommend the iMVP over the classroom.

This was a wonderful course hosted by ExitCertified and I am MUCH more prepared and knowledgeable on what I need to do in my job working in AWS in order to be prepared to consult with my customers and deploy their software in the cloud.

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Just finished up a course taught by Sean Mohseni. Excellent instructor. If you can find a course he's teaching, its well worth it.

Informative class with great instructure who was able to walk through the course material, answer all questions, and give great examples.
