AWS Micro-credentials

Validate your cloud computing expertise.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a universally recognized cloud-based computing platform used to store, access, and analyse data securely from anywhere in the world. To interact effectively with this cloud-based platform, users benefit from specific concept and task-related skills training. Through Keyin College’s AWS Certifications, individuals can build and validate their cloud skills while increasing their employability. For employers, having technology team members with AWS certifications will enable them to optimize the ways in which they store, access and analyse data.  

Keyin College is now offering three essential AWS micro-credentials to employers and their employees across the province. Through support from the Government of Canada, tuition will be fully funded for over 400 applicants. With first classes starting in spring 2023, apply now to secure your seat!
