About CLASS Advanced

The Cloud Learning and Skills Sessions (CLASS) Advanced is a two-week intensive learning experience that empowers the research and higher education community to leverage cloud platforms for research workflows. You will learn how to effectively build and manage cloud computing resources for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). CLASS Advanced is unique in that it offers vendor-neutral training to solve for common solutions. Ninety-one percent of attendees in the pilot cohort found the content relevant to their roles. 

Here’s what previous participants say about CLASS Advanced:

“This class was expertly conducted. It is the clearest explanation of cloud technology I have encountered.”

“The content and the way the lectures were delivered combined with quizzes, discussions, and hands-on labs kept me fully engaged. This workshop helped me to have a unified view about the important components ofAzure, AWS, and GCP services. This workshop prepared me to become a cloud champion …”
“I really valued the conversation and contributions from the others in the cohort in terms of real-world experiences with these services …”
“I really liked the compare/contrast between the services of the three different vendors …”
To be considered for the Fall 2023 cohort, all applicants must complete a self-assessment and submit an application (Coming Soon!).
