I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.

First remote course and I am pleasantly surprised. Love the on site facilities in Ottawa, but the online course format was very well received.

I like the instructor teaching method and well preparedness for the course.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.
