I can only say Thank You for persisting - following up and getting me into this class. Well spent 20-25 hours

Class had good pace, the curriculum appeared to focus on exam prep (which was good), the lab worked very well except for one small instance.

I was really happy with the overall experience of attending a remote course through ExitCeritfied.

I attended two different trainings with ExitCertified - very happy and satisfied.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.
