Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Mimmit koodaa are organizing a technical learning path aimed at increasing diversity in the industry and investing in the education, career path, mentoring, and certification of underrepresented individuals in the IT field.

Through this partnership, you have the opportunity to earn two different certifications. You can also participate in the content without a certification goal.

AWS is a subsidiary of Amazon, responsible for delivering technology solutions behind Amazon’s companies. AWS builds a global cloud infrastructure that is also offered to other customers. Their guiding principles include innovation, long-term development, and customer-centricity.

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you are using AWS cloud infrastructure in some form. For example, if you’re familiar with Netflix, LinkedIn, Twitter, Disney+, or watching Formula 1, you’ve used a service that runs on the AWS cloud platform.

 

Basic level: AWS Cloud Practitioner

The study paths offered during 2024 include the fundamental training targeted towards those who would like to gain AWS Cloud Practitioner certification level. This study path is being kicked off on 15th of February. The fundamentals training path will end in certification study prep.

During spring 2024, there is an architect trainee path being launched, which includes more demanding workshops and knowledge of the basic skills of information technology and programming, but the exercises are done according to written instructions and guided. Therefore, even beginners have the opportunity to participate. The architect trainee path also includes a certification prep session.

When you participate in the spring sessions, and the certificate preparation day, you will acquire the skills for the basic level. In addition to the sessions, there is homework that includes additional reading, practice tests, and videos.

Note: Webinars will serve as an introduction to the basics and will be recorded, and those will be found on YouTube and the Mimmit koodaa material site. Immersion days will provide practical experience in breakout rooms and will not be recorded.

Study efforts are supplemented by a communal Slack channel with peers and AWS workers. Ask invite link to the Mimmit koodaa Slack »
