Topics, material and specially instructor (Graham Godfrey) was beyond my expectations.

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

it was good and very informative. Instructure covered everything in detail.

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.

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
