Amazon AWS Training
This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for implementing, managing, and maintaining a computer systems and networking architecture in the Amazon Web Services cloud environment platform. Amazon Web Services supports an array of cloud service models, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Software-as-a-Service. The course provides students with the tools and knowledge they need to support existing cloud resources incorporated in these service models, or on-premises resources that will eventually migrate to the cloud.

Ultimately, Amazon Web Services enables businesses and other organizations to offload a great deal of computing infrastructure to the cloud. This can reduce operational costs, provide access to powerful emerging technologies, and streamline management of that infrastructure. This course prepares students to support these advantages in their day-to-day operational duties.

This course is designed for system administrators and other IT practitioners who will be implementing, supporting, and maintaining Amazon Web Services in their organizations.

This course is also designed for students who are seeking the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator—Associate Level certification and who want to prepare for the requisite exam.

Dr. Igbe is considered one of the best Instructors I ever had. I had zero experience in AWS before this class and now feel I can contribute to the team as an up and coming AWS Systems Operations Administrator. I am looking forward to further training in this area thanks to the exemplary training from Dr. Igbe.
