Mobilise Cloud are offering the chance for South Wales workers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic to upskill and gain AWS certification for free with the Get AWS Certified Global Challenge.
Mobilise Cloud will offer members of the AWS South Wales User Group vouchers allowing them to take the final exam for free once they complete the free online training course provided by AWS before November 30th. The scheme aims to specifically assist those from underrepresented groups and those directly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Get AWS Certified Global Challenge allows participants from around the world to become industry-recognised Certified Cloud Practitioners – demonstrating their understanding of how cloud impacts business, core AWS services, billing and pricing models, and security concepts. Free recommended training sessions, a practice exam, suggested resources and Q+A opportunities with assigned mentors are provided although the final exam will usually cost participants $100.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the increased need for workers to upskill, along with the financial implications, the pandemic has brought about, Mobilise Cloud, along with AWS and Serverless Events, is offering up to 40 members of the AWS South Wales User Group a voucher to cover the cost of the exam.
Those looking to secure an exam voucher can do so by becoming a member of the AWS South Wales User Group and registering for the Get AWS Certified Global Challenge before November 30th
“We are really pleased to be supporting the Get AWS Certified Global Challenge. We will be supplying mentors to offer advice and assistance to those who are studying. We’re also offering free exam vouchers to under-represented groups and those looking to retrain due to circumstances brought about by Covid-19. A recent survey showed that AWS qualifications had a positive impact both on salary and employability, so it’s well worth the effort to get certified.” James Carnie, CTO, Mobilise Cloud
“We are delighted to support the Get Certified Challenge. Our aim has always been to grow digital skills in the region. We recognise we are living in uncertain times, and that’s why we are pleased to support anyone looking to gain new skills and achieve a valuable cloud computing certification” Matt Lewis AWS SW Group
