The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.

ExitCertified was a great. They gave me all the materials and information I needed ahead of time to prepare for the course.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.

The instructor really took his time and made sure I was able to understand the concepts.
