18 April 2024 | Emeritus

Emeritus, the global leader in world-class professional education, announced it is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver AWS Training to learners worldwide. Emeritus has joined the AWS Training Partner Program, which enables AWS Authorized Instructors to deliver training developed by AWS.

As cloud technologies continue to help organizations transform their businesses rapidly, professionals with the necessary cloud skills are in high demand. Research shows that 85 percent of organizations report deficits in cloud expertise (451 Research, Voice of the Enterprise (VotE): Cloud, Hosting & Managed Services, Organizational Dynamics 2020, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence). The AWS Training Partner Program is designed for organizations such as Emeritus that meet or exceed rigorous criteria for delivering or offering high-quality technical training experiences. Emeritus provides AWS Training that enables IT professionals and organizations to leverage the power of the AWS Cloud.

The Professional Certificate in AWS Cloud Development, offered by Emeritus, is a unique opportunity to understand core AWS services, tools, and architecture best practices while acquiring hands-on experience by building a modern, scalable, and secure cloud-based application. The six-month online program combines expertly curated proprietary AWS content with the latest technological know-how and insights of industry practitioners. By concentrating exclusively on end-to-end development on AWS and providing a rigorous practice environment, this specialized program helps participants navigate AWS’s vast array of resources and gain valuable job-ready skills to succeed as a cloud developer. Participants will join a cohort of like-minded, driven professionals and receive one-on-one sessions with a career coach to help launch or elevate their cloud computing careers.

“We are pleased to partner with AWS to bring world-class AWS Training to learners globally. This collaboration signifies our commitment to addressing the growing demand for cloud expertise, empowering professionals to gain practical exposure to in-demand skills and navigate the transformative power of the AWS Cloud,” said Mike Malefakis, president of university partnerships at Emeritus. 

“Organizations need individuals with cloud skills to help transform their business, and there is a growing demand for IT professionals with AWS Cloud skills. AWS Training and Certification, along with our AWS Training Partners like Emeritus, aims to equip the builders of today and tomorrow with the knowledge they need to leverage the power of the AWS Cloud. AWS Training, designed by the experts at AWS, teaches in-demand cloud skills and best practices, and helps learners prepare for AWS Certification exams so they can advance their careers and transform their organizations,” said Maureen Lonergan, director of AWS Training and Certification. 

The program starts on May 23, 2024 and is open for enrollment through Emeritus. The fee is US$3,000. For more information, visit the program home page.
