Learn

"An Investment in knowledge pays the best interest." -Benjamin Franklin

We believe that education is the most critical component of any lasting shift. While cloud computing shares many of the same components as traditional infrastructure, there are lots of new concepts which require study and mastery in order to implement safely and efficiently.

We partner with Exit Certfied to deliver high quality education services. Exit Certified was recognized as one of the Top 20 IT Training providers of 2016 by Training Industry Inc.

We help you make the most of your Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud investment with the right training to help you gain proficiency and certifications. Training begins with a 1-day introductory AWS Essentials class, with options to learn and build skills by the role that best matches what you do – whether that is architecting, developing, or operating infrastructure and applications on AWS.
