The demand for qualified technology workers who can manage and maintain cloud computing systems is increasing as rapidly as the amount of information being stored on the cloud. WilmU’s College of Technology is helping to satisfy that demand with its new Cloud Practitioner certificate, scheduled to launch this fall.
“In the Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey area, there are currently more than 4,000 job openings for Amazon Web Services-certified candidates,” said Dr. James Farley, chair of the Cloud Practitioner certificate program. “AWS is looking for institutions like WilmU to facilitate and help students finish their educational trek and become certified.”
In just six months of online instruction, students can learn the basic cloud skills and intermediate training necessary to join the field. Courses such as Breaking Down Cloud Security; Cloud Architecture, Reliability & Economics; Cloud Services & Tools; and Cloud Operations & Performance prepare students to leverage the services that make up AWS’s data infrastructure. Plus, a cloud practitioner exam review course readies students to take AWS’s industry-recognized certification test.
