Asher College announced its participation in AWS Academy, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) program that provides higher education institutions with a ready-to-teach cloud computing curriculum. In 2022, students began enrolling in Asher’s Cloud and Computer Security Specialist program that will prepare them to obtain industry-recognized AWS Certifications and pursue careers in the fast-growing cloud computing space.
According to Tracy Applegate, AWS Academy’s Global Team Lead, “IT professionals with cloud skills are in high demand, and we’re proud to help advance training and learning opportunities for students at Asher College. With AWS Academy, students will be equipped with the practical skills they need to add value in their first cloud role.”
The AWS courses are included in two Asher College programs: the Cloud and Computer Security Specialist Certificate program and the Associate of Applied Science in Cloud and Computer Security Degree program. Both programs contain the AWS Cloud Practitioner (AWS101) and the AWS Solutions Architect (AWS102) courses. The programs are identical, but the AAS Degree program includes an additional six general education courses.
The AWS Academy curriculum is developed and maintained by AWS subject matter experts, ensuring that it reflects current services and up-to-date best practices. Courses are taught by AWS Academy- approved educators who are trained by AWS to help students become proficient in AWS technology.
“We are proud to make the AWS Academy curriculum available to our students,” said Asher College’s Director of Education Sachin Dandage. “The rapid rise of cloud computing is creating a growing number of high-quality jobs at organizations around the world, and the technical skills that students develop through this program will position them well for their careers today and in the future.”
