AWS Academy Cloud Foundations

AWS Cloud Foundations (ACF) is one of LSBF’s Digital Academy courses created to serve students looking for a career in cloud computing or those who wish to gain a conceptual and practical understanding about what cloud based computing is all about.

Many organisations and companies are now moving their information technology (IT) infrastructures to the cloud to save costs, increase profit, increase agility in responding to business needs and become more competitive in today’s tech-driven economy. To achieve these goals, companies need a well-trained workforce, and Amazon Web Services (AWS), is regarded as the world’s largest cloud based services provider. They are also a global leader in cloud computing training.

The AWS Academy Cloud Foundations (ACF) is intended for students who seek an overall understanding of cloud computing concepts, independent of specific technical roles. You will gain a detailed overview of cloud concepts, AWS core services, security, architecture, pricing and support.
