Free AWS Training

From 02 Feb 2021

The demand for the cloud workforce is growing exponentially. As a strong supporter of upskilling, Open Consulting is running AWS training to help the community to build their cloud skills and grow in this area. This course covers AWS services, Compute, Storage, Containers, Database, Networking, Security, and more. The syllabus will overlap with the entry-level AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner qualification with a flexible timeline.

Each week we will focus on a new topic as listed below. It is advisable to read through the topics before Tuesday’s interactive session. Tuesday’s evening session will last one hour (19:30-20:30 UK time) in which a designated lead will discuss the topic in an interactive session. Followed by an open discussion on technical real-world implementation issues and work opportunities.

These sessions will be hosted on Open Consulting’s official meeting link, recorded, and published on YouTube for future reference. Participants who are unable to attend a session will be able to catch up on the uploaded videos.
