The structure of the world of business is changing rapidly, and one change many companies and organizations are making is the move to cloud-based technologies. An in-depth understanding of cloud processes is a valuable resource needed to help businesses grow in these increasingly technology-centric times. Learn the principles taught through Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the Amazon-certified AWS Cloud Computing Certificate Program from LSU Online & Continuing Education.
Learn the characteristics, types, services, architectures, and applications of cloud computing, and learn how to contextualize and apply cloud principles in a wide range of industry settings. Students will leave this program with the skills necessary to understand cloud computing problems, architect solutions to those problems, and communicate those solutions effectively to clients, vendors, and others.
Through this program, students will be prepared for AWS certification exams and will gain a professional development certificate and a digital badge that can be used to expand their résumé and display subject matter expertise.
This certificate program is made up of the AWS Cloud Practitioner MicroCred® and the AWS Solutions Architect MicroCred® programs. Courses in this certificate can be purchased separately or bundled together.
MicroCred® instructor Melinda Stallings explains the importance of being able to show off your skills in a digital format when looking for a job.
