The Labs shown with in the exit certified portal allowed the student to put their new knowledge into action. There was seemless movement between the virtual classroom to this lab space. Thank you to the architects and developers who made this reality.

I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.

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.

The material was excellent, well laid out and the instructor was highly knowledgeable in material and able to present it easily.

Everything about this course went very smoothly. AWS materials and the laps were well presented and integrated. Thomas Canino and Ruben Lopez did a great job as instructor / moderator respectively. Loved the presentation style of Thomas together with his depth of knowledge of the topics and materials. Very Well Done!
