Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

I really enjoy the subject matter presented in this course. The instructor was very well verse and presented the material in a easy to understand and professional way... Great job!

The course material was laid out logically. There are a lot of aws services and concepts to cover in the three days but overall was a good learning experience.

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

Lot of material was covered in 3 days. Would be nice to have some more time to process the lab sections, especially.
