Introduction to AWS Training Reviews

Sreenivasul M. - AIG

“Course was good as an introduction for the beginners. Recommend to have more class room exercises and would be better if this is extended to a 5 day course.”

Cecil J. - Sr. Prof. Services Consultant, Softchoice

“The best class that I've taken so far at Learning Tree! Good knowledge of AWS and other cloud tech - very well versed in cloud network architectures.”

Cassandra B. - IT Specialist, U.S. Department of State

“The course was very intense for me, I think mostly because of unfamiliarity with the various dashboards. I've had little hands-on experience with AWS other than a comprehensive cloud computing course that covered other cloud providers, and some on-the-job training. Things got easier as I learned where to find the various services, and the labs were definitely helpful, but rushed for me. I plan to review them, hopefully using AWS, for further reinforcement and study.”

Emile B. - Senior Enterprise Architect, Freddie Mac

“Good introductory course on AWS. Recommend to expand briefly on best practices for small. medium, and large organizations.”

Joanne M. - Gov. Independent Consultant, MNX Corp

“I like the hands-on exercises. They really helped me understand the system much better.”
