The learning experience with Simplilearn was simply amazing. I have done 4 courses from Simplilearn in the last 2 years (including 1 instructor-led course). The course contents are rich and relevant, easy to grasp and implement. In case of few certification courses, Simplilearn offers 4 test exams. These exams almost mimic real exams in terms of quality of questions. Instructor-led courses are even more engaging. The trainer is very helpful by not just clearing the concepts but clearing those with the help of practical examples related to any industry. I will recommend my friends and colleagues for any future courses they want to pursue from Simplilearn and looking for many more courses for myself in Simplilearn.
