Hello. This video is to talk about an exciting new program at LACC, it is connected with Amazon Web Services.
Everybody has heard about Amazon. The retail giant, but how does Amazon survive the huge demands made on cyber monday and Prime Day.
They get millions of customers and consumers all over the world to buy things within a 24 to 48 hour period. How does Amazon not crumble under that kind of load.
Well, that has to do with Amazon Web Services, which is the way IT works in the cloud.
So this special program at LACC was created under the auspices of California cloud workforce. This California cloud workforce is made up of 19 colleges in Southern California.
And other colleges in Northern California. So this is a completely statewide effort. So I want to explain a little bit about what this program involves and why would it be of utmost benefit to you.
So my name is Munir Samplewala I am in charge of the AWS program at LACC
As there were 19 colleges in the consortium Santa Monica was the lead for this project. And I'm also working at SMC and keeping the courses up to date and making modifications to that.
I also do training for the instructors at other colleges and high school teachers.
So what does it involve to get certified and become knowledge about knowledgeable about AWS. So there are four courses introduction to cloud computing
Data basis in AWS compute engines and security. After you take this four courses and couple of additional courses you will be eligible for a state approved certificate of achievement. This certificate will appear on your transcript and will be a very important milestone for you.
How much does it cost to take this thing.
