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

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

The exit certified aws course provided a good introduction to the tools available on aws.

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

Overall ExitCertified is a great training provider and the remote learning is as effective as in person.
