Training Program Description:

With the advance of technology and the need for businesses to adapt quickly to changing market conditions, cloud computing is one of the most in-demand skills for IT professionals. Businesses that embrace and adopt cloud platforms such as AWS can respond to change faster and more efficiently. Cloud platforms enable them to build and deploy scalable and cost effective solutions in a shorter period of time compared to traditional self-owned and self-managed hardware.

This Amazon Web Services (AWS) training program is divided into 11 remote sessions, each with a duration of 2 hours. The sessions will be delivered weekly over the course of 6 weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 am - 11:30 am. The objective of this training is to provide a strong base of knowledge about the core AWS services, learning how each service interconnects with other services in the AWS Cloud ecosystem. All sessions are 100% hands- on, enabling students to learn how to provision required resources to build a high availability infrastructure. Students in this training will have the hands-on opportunity to build a productive topology to host a fault tolerant website.

One of the greatest advantages of cloud computing platforms such as AWS is reducing the total cost of ownership for IT resources. This training program will guide students on the best practices for building, deploying and scaling the core AWS services.
