Opening doors for innovation with AWS Cloud Computing Training

01 Aug 2022

As public and private sector organisations gear up for innovation and virtualisation, the demand for professionals with digital skills grows. Investing in online and onsite programs for Amazon cloud computing training helps with upskilling staff, connecting to untapped talent and supporting job placement.

Cloud computing training made accessible

A report on the Asia Pacific by AlphaBeta (a strategy and economics consultancy) identified that four groups will need to acquire digital skills by 2025. These include digital workers who need to upskill, non-digital workers who will need to adapt to virtualisation in some of their processes, today’s generation of students, and those who are unemployed or underemployed due to a lack of access to opportunities.

Programs like AWS re/Start have been instrumental in preparing underemployed and unemployed individuals for careers in cloud computing. This full-time 12-week program is delivered through local training providers like Tè Pūkenga in New Zealand.

For digital and non-digital teams who need to manage hybrid arrangements and day to day work on top of learning and development, investing in cloud computing training offers options for on-site and virtual delivery.

On-site training for cloud computing

On-site classroom training, especially a customised private session, does more than effectively and efficiently impart skills that enable cloud innovation. It offers these benefits:

1. Faster learning curve and cloud adoption
Empowered with cloud computing training, teams will be able to install and configure solutions faster and improve the implementation of new technology. They’ll also become familiar with tools, templates, checklists, and real-world best practices that they can use right away.

The IDC also reports that comprehensive training helped organisations adopt the cloud 80% faster than organisations that were minimally trained. This enabled them to rapidly capitalise on the benefits of AWS Cloud.

2. Stronger team spirit and train when and where you want
Convenient and flexible, private on-site training saves time and money while eliminating your team’s need to travel far. You can even collaborate with local AWS authorised trainers on how to customise the materials for your business case.

And with hybrid work arrangements, an on-site classroom setting can energise and inspire your team. Learners can discuss and learn about the cloud together while temporarily breaking away from the confines of working from home or the office.

3. Privacy when discussing your cloud strategy
Private and in person cloud computing training is completely confidential. Employees can seek practical guidance that’s relevant to their projects or tasks, or your organisation’s overall cloud strategy.

This supports a free and open discussion of the challenges, issues and opportunities that your organisation faces in the cloud.

Virtual or Online Cloud Computing Training

Another option is Virtual Classroom Training. It is delivered with the same high standards you would expect in a classroom setting. The only difference is that you will not be in a physical environment. Virtual sessions are delivered live by your instructor, so you can get on-the-spot answers, as well as practical support. For those with teams in different locations or shifts, it offers these benefits:

1. Choice and enhanced accessibility
Virtual Classroom Training through AWS Training Partners offers an enhanced choice on when, where, and how you can take classroom training; allowing you to choose the session that works for your calendar and convenience.

2. Time and cost efficiency
Opting for online cloud computing courses offers access to training from the convenience of your own home office. By removing the need to travel, you will be able to save time, resources, and money.

3. Private chat function with instructor
Virtual Classroom Training offers you a unique opportunity to engage with instructors via private chat functions; allowing you to feel comfortable asking questions without the need to share amongst the wider group.
