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.

well organized and designed course. Tommy is good teacher and answer our all the questions

The instructor was very good but there were a few technical problems form cognizant's end that made things difficult from time to time.

ExitCertified education was extremely helpful for preparing me for the AWS certifications.

Its really nice to have the snacks available everyday. The staff is courteous and professional.
