CLC Africa, a leading provider of expert learning and development (L&D) talent and upskilling solutions, has been an Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) Authorised Training Partner (ATP) for the last two years. Computer Learning Centre (CLC) Africa has joined the AWS Training Partner Programme, which allows AWS Authorised Instructors to deliver training developed by AWS.
The AWS Training launch at Radisson Blue, Upper Hill, was to inform both the public and private sectors that AWS training and certification are available locally with CLC Africa within the region.
As cloud technologies continue to help organisations transform their businesses, employees with the necessary cloud skills are in high demand. Research shows that 85 per cent of organisations report cloud expertise deficits (451 Research, Voice of the Enterprise (VotE): Cloud, Hosting & Managed Services, Organisational Dynamics 2020, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence). The AWS Training Partner Programme is designed for organisations like CLC Africa that meet or exceed rigorous criteria for offering high-quality technical training experiences. CLC Africa delivers AWS Training that allows information technology (IT) professionals and businesses to leverage the power of AWS.
As a trusted ATP, CLC AFRICA offers a variety of official training courses, including Architecting on AWS, AWS Cloud Essentials for Business Leaders, AWS Cloud for Finance Professionals, AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials, AWS Security Essentials, AWS Technical Essentials, and Exam Readiness. Our AWS-authorised instructors give learners the opportunity to learn best practices and get live feedback and answers to questions from an expert instructor. We work closely with organisations to provide private training to upskill their staff on in-demand cloud skills.
AWS Training is developed and maintained by AWS, providing content that reflects current best practices. Some courses also include hands-on labs, which allow learners to practice real-world scenarios in a sandbox environment. Training can also help prepare learners for AWS Certification exams, which validate technical skills and expertise with an industry-recognised credential.
“We are thrilled to be an AWS Training Partner,” said Aunally Maloo, the Group CEO, CLC Africa. “For decades, our mission has centred on providing specialised training to support our customers’ changing workforce development needs. Working together with AWS helps this continued purpose and the team of AWS Authorised Instructors is prepared to deliver technical training to professionals on a breadth of AWS Training options. Gartner Leading Network Firewall Partners are AWS Partners. CLC Africa is an ATC for leading Gartner cybersecurity vendors, hence, we are a one-stop training centre for cloud and cybersecurity training.
“Organisations need individuals with cloud skills to help transform their business, and there is a growing demand for IT professionals with AWS skills,” states Sara Matter, Training Manager, AWS Training and Certification. “AWS Training and Certification, along with our AWS Training Partners like CLC AFRICA, aims to equip the builders of today and tomorrow with the knowledge they need to leverage the power of AWS. AWS Training, designed by the experts at AWS, teaches in-demand cloud skills and best practices, and helps learners prepare for AWS Certification exams to advance their careers and transform their organisations.”
