Live AWS boot camps allow individuals and businesses to learn and benefit from cloud certification.

Infosec Institute, a leading cybersecurity education provider and part of Cengage Group, today announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to become an authorized training provider of live, in-person boot camps for AWS certifications. IT and cybersecurity professionals can now enroll in five AWS certification boot camps to build the domain expertise required for successful cloud transformation.

As the demand for skilled cloud professionals continues to soar, Infosec and AWS are joining forces to deliver comprehensive, hands-on training that equips learners with the knowledge and expertise needed to excel in cloud-based environments. These boot camps will cover essential topics such as cloud architecture, security, networking and deployment strategies, providing participants with a holistic understanding of AWS services and technologies. The five AWS live boot camps available now from Infosec include:

AWS certifications are among the most pursued in the cybersecurity industry by both employers and professionals. With this new partnership, professionals can now achieve certification in how they learn best, whether live online, in-person, or asynchronously via the Infosec Skills platform. Authorized AWS instructors will lead all AWS training, including the Infosec Exam Pass Guarantee. More AWS training will be added in the coming months, including training for a new AWS certification.

“We’re excited to provide IT and cybersecurity professionals with a new way to train for in-demand AWS certifications,” said Bret Fund, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Infosec. “This collaboration underscores our commitment to empowering individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape. Together with AWS, we aim to set a new standard for cloud training excellence and help bridge the skills gap in the industry.”

According to Gartner, “worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 20.4% to total $678.8 billion in 2024, up from $563.6 billion in 2023.” Cloud computing also remains the largest hard skills gap in today’s cybersecurity professionals, according to the ISACA 2023 State of Cybersecurity Report. By combining Infosec’s expertise in cybersecurity education with AWS’s industry-leading cloud platform, the AWS cloud boot camps will play a pivotal role in addressing this growing demand and preparing individuals for successful careers in cloud computing.

“Organizations of all sizes need certified cloud professionals to support their digital transformation initiatives, and AWS is ranked number one for 2022 revenue in the cloud infrastructure market,” said Gina Smith, Ph.D., research director of the global IT Skills for Digital Business research practice at IDC. “This partnership between Infosec and AWS is pushing the cloud training market forward by providing more ways for organizations to fill the growing skills demand and effectively implement, manage and secure their cloud infrastructure in 2024 and beyond.”
