Today we released substantially updated English-language versions of AWS Business Professional and AWS Technical Professional, web-based accreditation courses designed to help APN Partners stay current on AWS, articulate the benefits of AWS services, and help customers make informed decisions about IT solutions.

Both courses are available to APN Partners at no cost via the APN Portal and count toward APN tier requirements that help Partners advance. The 2015 English versions of each course add coverage of key new AWS services and features; are more concise and better align AWS solutions with APN competencies; and feature improved interactivity with new video demos and exercises. Here are the course summaries:
