What is the AWS Cloud Computing Programme?

ALX is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Academy member institution. This programme is developed and maintained by AWS, a world leader in cloud technologies.

The first 8 weeks are ALX Foundations, where you will learn critical communication, leadership, and career development skills that will help you thrive in the digital workforce.

You’ll then learn all about AWS, focusing on solutions architecture, storage & databases, cloud architecture, and security. Each of these modules represent potential career paths AWS Cloud Practitioners can follow after becoming certified.

Upon completion, you will receive a globally-recognised AWS Cloud Practitioner and Solutions Architect certifications from Amazon Web Services.

ALX had a profound impact on my career development. The programme exceeded my expectations in every way. Within weeks of graduating and implementing some of the learnt strategies, I began to get invitations for interviews, one of which has translated into my current job.”
