Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

Training was really good and loved having examples to test against the cloud. The training format was also really nice with live interaction but comfort of being at home for the training.

All of it was valuable. This is new for me and provided a great insight leading to creating datasets, tables, models and evaluating the model.

Arnold was able to explain topics properly and correlate it better with real time scenarios.

Instructor prepared well. Arnold was able to cover all his topics within the class time frame and provided enough time for the qwiklabs.
