The labs and course material gave me valuable insights into cloud security architecture

Concise and good to follow along. Although it is a lot to take in under a short period of time.

Instructor was great, course was mostly very good except for too much focus on pricing

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.
