Why study this course

In this course, students will learn to identify services and features to build resilient, secure and highly available IT solutions on the AWS Cloud.

Architectural solutions differ depending on industry, types of applications, and business size. AWS Authorised Instructors emphasise best practices using the AWS Well-Architected framework, and guide you through the process of designing optimal IT solutions based on real-life scenarios. The modules focus on account security, networking, compute, storage, databases, monitoring, automation, containers, serverless architecture, edge services, and backup and recovery. At the end of the course, you will practice building a solution and apply what you have learned.

This course includes presentations based on use cases. It also includes group discussions, demonstrations, assessments, and hands-on labs.

We also offer a one-day AWS Jam Session to complement this course and enhance your learning. The AWS Jam is a gamified event, with teams competing to score points by completing a series of challenges based on concepts covered in the course.
