Benjamin’s Cloud Academy Experience

 “I was impressed by the level of detail of Cloud Academy’s courses, quizzes and labs.”

He is a board member of SMCC Technology Curriculum Advisory Board and a member of The Computing Technology Industry Association. Since October 2015, he has acquired four Microsoft certifications, but didn’t had time to use all of labs and courses. Thanks to Cloud Academy’s annual plan, he can download these anytime for offline review.

“The courses are just excellent. And the labs and quizzes really prepare you for certification.”

Benjamin took the quizzes several times, watched video courses and worked through a variety of labs. Thanks to Cloud Academy, he was able to grow his knowledge of ELB, EC2 and Route53.
