Very good. Easy to use. Communication was good. Problems were resolved quickly. Nice instructor.

The course was easy to enroll and connect. All emails guided me to the class and labs. Everything went smoothly

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

There were too many emails and it was confusing trying to understand what information we would be getting from which emails.

Overall a good course although a lot of content was packed into a short span of time
