ExitCertified class worked well and provided good starting point for Architecting on AWS

I just finished the 3 days training on AWS Solution Architect course instructed by Seid. He is very knowledgeable. He engaged the students and he is very friendly. The labs were well planned. I strongly suggest people to take the course.

Good in providing online courses and rescheduling was followed up very well, but the earbuds promised were not sent.

Instructor was engaging, very knowledgeable, and explained things clearly. Labs were helpful in getting used to the tools that were being taught. Course location (Atlanta Microtek facility) was very comfortably set up. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone learning a new skill. (I took the 3-day AWS Big Data training).

The class is a good review of the services available in AWS.

In my mind. Myles Brown is an excellent instructor. His teaching approach agrees with me. No discernible stress about public speaking. Very engaging.

Enroll in the course offerings? Will enroll at the drop of a hat if approved. To ask mgmt to approve enrolment is another matter for me. Nothing to do with your company. Just a statement of fact.

Maybe a course on Google and MS Azure like this will be nice. If you have alternative options to mgmt, it is more likely that they shall have to choose one. Allow us to enroll.
