Kiwi AWS certifications set to rise with new nationwide training courses

11 Oct 2017

For those wanting to brush up on their AWS skills - Auldhouse, a Kiwi technology training provider, has you covered.

Auldhouse will launch Amazon Web Services (AWS) certification courses that will be available across the country.

Auldhouse aims to help grow the number of AWS certifications in New Zealand as it becomes the first local training provider to deliver regularly scheduled AWS courses in the South Island.

"Auldhouse is already the premier provider of cloud training in New Zealand. We train more people in a wider range of cloud technologies in more places in New Zealand than any other provider," says Auldhouse managing director, Melanie Hobcraft.

In addition to a one-day AWS Fundamentals course, Auldhouse will offer the following three AWS Associate Level Certification courses:

  • AWS Solutions Architect
  • AWS Systems Operations Administrator
  • AWS Developer

"Adding AWS to our portfolio means there are now more opportunities for New Zealanders to become certified in the world's leading cloud infrastructure platform - no matter where they are based," adds Hobcraft.

"The opportunities for New Zealand IT professional and service providers who develop their AWS skills and certifications are immense. Not only does AWS hold a 33% share of the cloud infrastructure industry worldwide, it also won a New Zealand whole-of-government agreement in May.”

"This will only drive further demand for AWS certified professionals in New Zealand. And now our customers, anywhere in New Zealand, can complete their AWS training with the provider they have known and trusted for their technology training for over 25 years." The three-day courses will prepare students for the AWS Associate-level certification exam. Students will also be able to complete their AWS training and sit their certification exams at Auldhouse.

"Auldhouse is an authorised testing centre for official AWS exam testing partners Kryterion and PSI Services. Our customers can do their training with us and then return to the same location for their exams," continues Hobcraft.

With registration now open, the first Auldhouse AWS courses start in November at training centres in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, as well as through Auldhouse's live online training service Auldhouse Anywhere.
