Now Available: Updated AWS Business and Technical Accreditation Courses

One of the keys to building a successful business on AWS is ensuring you’re properly trained on all AWS has to offer. AWS continues to innovate at a rapid pace, and it’s crucial we provide up-to-date training resources as you on board and build your business on AWS. To that end, today we released substantially updated English-language versions of our free and online accreditation courses for APN Partners. These courses are designed to help new APN Partners learn how to articulate the benefits of AWS services and solutions to customers. We have updated the content in the 2016 versions to add coverage of key new AWS services and features.

Both courses are available to you at no cost via the APN Portal and count toward APN tier requirements that help you advance up the tiers. Here’s a quick rundown of each course:

AWS Business Professional (Released November 2016)

  • What you’ll learn: Foundational knowledge on key AWS services and core business value propositions.
  • Who it’s for: Business roles responsible for articulating the benefits of AWS services and how AWS and partner solutions help solve common business problems.

AWS Technical Professional (Released November 2016)

  • What you’ll learn: Key foundational technical concepts around AWS, including global infrastructure, services, common solutions, migration, security, and compliance.
  • Who it’s for: Technical roles responsible for helping customers make informed decisions about IT solutions.

If you’re still working on the 2015 English version of either course, you have two options. You can enroll in the improved 2016 version to achieve your accreditation. Or, you can finish the version you’ve already started, as long as you complete all your assessments by December 21. After this date, the 2015 English versions will no longer be available.
