DevOpsGroup, a leading cloud and DevOps consultancy, has achieved AWS Training Partner status in the UK. As an AWS Training Partner, DevOpsGroup will deliver AWS Training which complements our certified training in DevOps and Agile as well as cloud coaching and mentoring services. Only AWS Training Partners are accredited by AWS to deliver AWS authored training, including classroom and digital offerings.
As cloud technologies continue to help organisations transform their businesses at a rapid pace, employees with the necessary cloud skills are in high demand.
DevOpsGroup has a wealth of experience in delivering cloud and DevOps training to blue-chip financial services and public sector organisations. Recently, DevOpsGroup established the UK’s Driver and Vehicle Licencing Association (DVLA) Cloud Academy, an intensive skills development and training program that prepares individuals for cloud careers in DVLA engineering teams.
DVLA’s Head of IT Service Creation Tom Brewer says DevOpsGroup was “professional and helpful throughout the engagement and the quality of work was outstanding”.
“The idea behind the cloud academy was to train work-ready cloud engineers to offset the difficulty in recruiting in a challenging market. The result has been that every member of the first cohort of students is now making a real difference in our cloud platform team.”Tom Brewer, Head of IT Service Creation, DVLA
In 2021, DevOpsGroup launched the AWS re/Start program in Wales for the first time. AWS re/Start is a full-time, 12-week skills-based training program that prepares learners from unemployed, underemployed and underrepresented populations for entry-level careers in the cloud. The program is designed to accommodate differing levels of experience – even those with no previous technical knowledge can apply. On completion of the program, graduates are connected with potential employers.
DevOpsGroup is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner specialising in DevOps-enabled cloud migration. As an AWS Training Partner, DevOpsGroup offers official AWS Training, either on a standalone basis or as part of wider engineering focused engagements.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to achieve AWS Training Partner status. We’ve worked closely with major customers to educate and develop the next generation of AWS cloud engineers from the ground up. The prospect of helping more AWS customers get more from the cloud is very exciting.”James Harvey, Director – Academy, DevOpsGroup
Cloud engineering skills are one of the critical success factors in cloud migration and cloud adoption at scale. With DevOpsGroup support, customers can accelerate their journey to cloud success and build strong foundations for cloud adoption.
DevOpsGroup works with clients to re-skill existing engineers as well as training people from non-IT backgrounds. Our aim is to go beyond classroom certification, creating cloud-ready engineers that thrive in the modern cloud environment. This is achieved through a blend of classroom-based technical training, Agile and DevOps certifications and longer-term coaching delivered by certified cloud and DevOps practitioners.
Maureen Lonergan, Director, AWS Training and Certification, says: “Organisations need individuals with cloud skills to help transform their business, and there is a growing demand for IT professionals with AWS Cloud skills. AWS Training and Certification, along with our training partners, aims to provide the top learning resources and deep knowledge learners need to innovate and build the future using the AWS Cloud. AWS Training content is built on native AWS knowledge, and gives learners a path to advance their careers and transform their organisations.”
