The AWS Academy curriculum is developed and maintained by AWS subject matter experts, ensuring that it reflects current services and up-to-date best practices. Courses are taught by AWS Academy-accredited educators who are trained by AWS to help students become proficient in AWS technology.

With AWS Academy, Ajman University will be able to prepare its students for industry-recognized certifications and careers in the cloud.
