New AWS TCO and Cloud Economics Accreditation for APN Partners

One of the keys to building a successful business on AWS is to ensure you’re properly trained on all the AWS platform has to offer. The goal of AWS Training for APN Partners is to help you effectively address business and technical objectives for your customers, and to design innovative AWS-based customer solutions. AWS Training and Certification has developed a number of training resources for APN Partners, including online Business and Technical Professional Accreditation courses, both of which have been recently updated.

Announcing the New AWS TCO and Cloud Economics Accreditation

In addition to the Business and Technical Professional courses, we recently announced AWS TCO and Cloud Economics, a new web-based training course designed to help APN Partners gain foundational knowledge of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) concept and the economics of data centers as it relates to AWS. This course helps enable you to use the AWS TCO Calculator to understand the value of AWS, and to explain the benefits of AWS IT solutions based on TCO.

Accreditation can be earned by completing the series of e-learning modules and assessments. The course is intended for individuals who have completed AWS Business Professional or AWS Technical Professional:
