     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s College of Science and Technology – Workforce Talent Initiative is sponsoring two free Amazon Web Services cloud computing professional development workshops - AWS Cloud Foundations and AWS Cloud Data Analytics Foundations.
     Scheduled Sept. 27 – Nov. 8, both fully online courses run simultaneously and are asynchronous. Registration is not required for both courses; however, those not familiar with AWS or cloud computing are encouraged to do so. Registration is available at until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24.
     Workforce Talent Initiative Program Coordinator Paul Forbes said the AWS Cloud Foundations course prepares participants to sit for the certification examination in cloud foundations.
     “The AWS Cloud Analytics Foundations course is an introductory or ‘lite’ version of the Data Analytics Specialty certification course,” Forbes said. “The course serves as an introduction with hands-on analytics labs. It does not prepare participants for the AWS Cloud Data Analytics Specialty certification exam.”
     “Southeastern’s College of Science and Technology is pleased to offer these courses at no cost as a community service to help prepare Louisiana’s workforce for current and future jobs in information technology,” he added. “Lion Up to take your career to the next level.”
