Studying a new career in the cloud can be hard. Not only do you have a seemingly unlimited list of different concepts and topics to learn, but you have to ensure you are building your knowledge in a structured way — from a beginner to a professional level.
Passing an IT certificate is one thing, but building your learning journey so that it leads to a scalable career in cloud computing is a different story — and requires a radically different approach.
There are many ways to stand out from your competition and put yourself at the front of the list when you are approached by recruiters and hiring managers. The difficulty again, lies with deciding how to prioritize these methods of building success with AWS materials, alongside soft skills like interviewing or building your online brand.
You can achieve all of this — and much much more when you sign up for our AWS Bootcamps.
As a Bootcamp student, you get to enjoy live expert instruction with real-world hands-on projects — fully preparing you for your next AWS certification exam and getting you job-ready.
The current curriculum aligns with two certification programs (AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner and AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate) which you will be guaranteed to pass by the end of the program.
When you join our AWS Bootcamps, you will not only be able to learn the fundamental cloud skills you will need to gain your AWS Certification, but you will also learn how to build multi-faceted applications which involve a broad range of AWS features and services, designed to be closely aligned with real projects and scenarios.
Below, we’ve listed the top 10 Reasons to join an AWS Bootcamp:
Accountability is one of the hardest aspects of achieving anything on your own. If you do not have anyone to keep you accountable, you are likely to fail and return to your old ways, and never succeed in becoming a cloud professional.
In our AWS Bootcamps, everyone is accountable to everyone else. We have regular check-ins, recap sessions and group study. Most importantly, we work together to ensure that we address any question or misunderstanding before we move on. This level of accountability will mold you into an AWS professional in a matter of a few weeks.

Early in your cloud career, the main struggle involves not having enough viable experience in order to land your first job. Our AWS Bootcamps not only will give you plenty of hands-on experience which you can use to deepen the theoretical knowledge — you will also be able to use the live sessions to craft a number of projects which you can show to your future employer. This will give you an advantage over other candidates applying for the same role.
