CloudUp was created for people who:

  • aim to achieve an AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification

  • don’t have the ability to study full-time due to work commitments

  • want a flexible way of learning

  • prefer studying as part of a motivating and supportive community

There is no pre-requisite knowledge required to join - the Cloud Practitioner course is great for those new to tech or new to the AWS Cloud.

Exam and certification

To round out your knowledge there are optional exam prep sessions you can attend. To keep connected during the program, there is a Discussion Forum on our learning platform for Q&As.

At the end of the 8 weeks, you will book to take your AWS Cloud Practitioner exam and participate in a graduation event.

Time commitment required
