Updated APN Partner Accreditation Courses Available in More Languages

In order to upgrade in the APN, Consulting Partners must hold a certain number of AWS Accreditations – you can learn more about the requirements per tier here. Last fall, we released updated English versions of AWS Business and Technical Professional, our web-based accreditation courses for APN Partners. Today we’re making them available in six additional languages— Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, German, and Brazilian Portuguese, with Spanish to follow soon.

AWS continues to innovate at a rapid pace, and one of the keys to building a successful business on AWS is ensuring you can accurately explain the value and operation of AWS and its latest features. AWS Business and Technical Professional consist of e-learning modules and assessments designed to help you stay current, whatever your specific role:
