The instructor is very good and very accommodating and excellent in answering participant's questions.

Knowledgeable instructor with lots of resources provided and a clear teaching style.

I found the IBM HACMP course to be very good. The instructor was top notch!

I received a link for automated set up. I do not like automated set up links since there's always a chance of compromise.

The training was excellent which is what I expecting for Amazon software training.
