The battle for cloud supremacy sure has picked up pace this year. AWS may still be in the lead, but both Microsoft and Google are growing more quickly, and catching up fast.
And Amazon knows this.
The cloud giant wants to ensure that there is no shortage of talent for companies to maintain their cloud computing operations and take care of their AWS needs. And yesterday, it announced that it is launching its own dedicated training and certification portal for aspiring AWS solution architects.
This new endeavor will allow them the opportunity to independently manage and monitor their progress — in one convenient place.
AWS shared the good news in a blog post, saying:
“Previously, you had to rely on multiple websites to find and manage training and certification offerings. Now you have a central place where you can find and enroll in AWS Training, register for AWS Certification exams, track your learning progress, and access benefits based on the AWS Certifications you have achieved.”
Accessing this new portal is simple enough.
You can simply create a new account, or log in with your existing Amazon account. Those of you who already own AWS Training accounts will also get the option to migrate their existing training history to this new platform.
Of course, while this new training portal will certainly make it easier for AWS novices to stay on top of the best practices in managing cloud infrastructures, and keep tabs on the latest trends, employers still prefer to bet on candidates that have practical experience.
Nevertheless, this is still a good way for rookies to pick up actual certifications to back up their competence in this highly engaging area of computing in a continually changing field.
And for Amazon, a way to lure talent to its cloud platform.
