They were very good. They made sure everyone was able to get into the training and got all of the material needed for class.

This was a good program to get prepared for the solutions architect associate exam.

This course gave me a clearer understanding of the AWS cloud architecture.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth
