Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.

Great and very intuitive. Better than the traditional hit the wrong button/lose points.

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

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

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
