Great company to work with. Have taken training with Exit in the past. This experience is consistent with the others.

Great instructor and good class material. Labs were helpful and put together very well.

It's good for developers and those with technical backgrounds, but not for business personnel.

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.

Attended a Power BI class in McLean with this company. The instructor (Mike Staves) was very good and attentive to the groups' learning needs. The facility was very good and the staff was more than accommodating.
