Bespoke Training Services today announced it has been named the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Authorised Training Partner for New Zealand, after successful rollout of AWS training in Australia. Courses offered through Bespoke Training Services are designed to help deliver cloud-based solutions using the AWS platform, and realise the cost savings and efficiencies the cloud can enable in an organisation.
To coincide with this announcement, Bespoke is highlighting its Spring AWS Training Schedule for IT professionals slated for September in Auckland, and November in Wellington and Christchurch. These hands-on, intimate, instructor-led technical seminars will be delivered by highly qualified AWS trainers.
“As an important complement to the online resources offered by Amazon Web Services, instructor-led sessions offer IT decision makers and technology professionals the opportunity to become more familiar with AWS capabilities through immersive, hands-on exercises,” said Trent Rosenthal, Director, Bespoke Training Services.
“The face-to-face training from an AWS expert is valuable, as is the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any challenges you may be facing in your own implementation of Amazon Web Services,” said Rosenthal.
AWS instructor-led training sessions help those using the AWS platform to deepen their cloud expertise, with targeted and role-specific training. As well as working towards recognition of their skillset through AWS certification, trainees will become more proficient with the AWS platform, enabling them to more effectively and efficiently design, build, deploy, monitor and scale available, efficient and secure applications on behalf of their organisations and clients.

timmmay: I'm studying for the Amazon certified solution architect. I read a basics book, I'm going through a video course, and I'm reading the documentation on my kindle. There's a lot of ground to cover, but seems straightforward enough.
