CLASS Learning Pathway: Internet2 AWS Solutions Architect Associate CertificationTraining to Begin Feb. 6
By Amanda Tan - Internet2 Research Engagement Program Manager
The 5th cohort of AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certification training begins on February 6, 2023. The course runs for nine weeks, ending on April 10, 2023.
As in previous cohorts, the training will be led by Sharif Nijim and leverage training materials from Cloud Academy. Participants will build foundational cloud computing knowledge and cement that knowledge using hands-on labs to help prepare them for becoming certified AWS Solutions Architect – Associates.
|The Internet2 AWS SAAC filled in the gaps in my working knowledge of AWS and gave me the confidence to take and pass the certification test. The weekly discussions helped to cement the topics that were being covered in the course that week with participants sharing real world architectures and the decision making behind their implementation. |
—Christopher Andrews, Principal Collaboration Systems Administrator, Boston College
Participants can expect to commit roughly 5-7 hours per week during the nine-week course and will be expected to attend and participate in cohort activities, including weekly, virtual video check-in sessions.
The full cost of attending the program, including the use of the Cloud Academy licenses but not including the cost of the certification exam, is as follows:
|Category of Institution||Cost per person|
