I have been extremely pleased

“As an experienced healthcare professional making a transition into the IT field, I have been extremely pleased with the support that MedCerts has given me from the time that I started taking their courses. Being a married professional with a child, my life is extremely busy, and the advantages that their online course offers are substantial. I would, in particular, like to acknowledge the tremendous support that I have received (and continue to receive) from the IT academic advisor. The team has all worked diligently, and gone above and beyond the call of duty, to resolve my concerns, and assist me with the completion of my IT program. I would heartily recommend MedCerts to anyone who is thinking about changing their current field, or acquiring a new skill set, while they are currently employed.”

IT 7200 AWS Solutions Architect Associate

The IT-7200 AWS Solutions Architect - Associate program is recommended for experienced IT professionals looking to expand in their role, gain more earning power and demonstrate proficiency in cloud computing. As technology continues to evolve, and businesses explore new methods of doing things, it's critical that IT professionals keep pace with this evolution. Cloud computing is not new, but its evolution has accelerated in the last 10 years.

The most recent 2020 reports show 94% of enterprise workloads on a cloud-based solution, with the global public cloud service revenue exceeding $330 billion; it is estimated that by 2026 this number will go over $1,025 billion. These days it's almost impossible to find an organization that doesn't utilize a cloud service or solution.

This program contains two courses related to Amazon Web Services. The first is AWS Essentials, designed as an introduction to the basics of the AWS platform. The Essentials course is an overview of the AWS cloud and is independent of any specific technical roles. The second course is far more comprehensive and provides students with the knowledge and skills required to design resilient, high-performing, secure and cost-optimized architectures.

Customer Service is a priority in situations where any interaction occurs, so you’ll learn the fundamentals of Customer Service by completing a module through the Professional Association for Customer Engagement (PACE). This training is designed to be transferrable to any position, across virtually any industry. Once you successfully complete this course, you’ll be Customer Service Certified (CSC).

This program also provides training that covers Microsoft Word and Excel. These courses teach strong word processing and spreadsheet skills that are valuable to business and IT professionals across all industries. Additionally, according to Burning Glass data, Microsoft Word and Excel are in the top 5 Baseline Skills required by employers for all IT candidates.

Upon program completion, MedCerts will sponsor the cost of the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate national certification exam.
