Had a smooth training experience with ExitCertified. The trainer conducted the training smoothly and all the topics were covered with lab exercises.

training was very well organized in terms of material, presentation, instructor expertise.

ExitCertified was a good platform to use to develop the relevant skills and we learned a lot on how to actually spin up the tools and services we were learning about.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

Well organized support staff. Second class that I have taken through Tech Data and found it more than a good use of my time.
