elev8 (www.elev8me.com) education, a leading global partner for digital skills and transformative education, announced that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Education Partner Program. Through this program, elev8 will deliver cloud computing skills training, developed and maintained by AWS, to organizations and learners in Nigeria and Rwanda.

Many companies have accelerated their digital transformation plans this year; however, innovation and safety remain a major challenge and priority. elev8 works with AWS to help learners and organizations navigate and adapt to the ever-changing landscape and create meaningful change by responding to changing work demands by reskilling and upskilling employees.

As cloud technologies continue to help organizations rapidly transform their businesses, employees with the necessary cloud skills are in high demand. According to Global Knowledge (https://go.aws/3M2PaF7), 90% of IT leaders have a plan to close the skills gap, and 56% believe the solution is to train existing staff. Additionally, an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) study shows (https://go.aws/3Pdf3UJ) that 93% of organizations say supporting AWS certification improves team recruitment, and 96% agree that their decision to certify cloud-focused staff on AWS has better retention (ESG Report 2021).

Elemi Ani, Global Head of Solutions, Design and Digital Transformation at elev8, commented on their collaboration with AWS, saying, “As the future of work progresses, the cloud has proven to be a technology in vital line. When it comes to cloud adoption, infrastructure, and development, the cloud computing market has been on a rapid upward trajectory since the onset of the pandemic. It is therefore essential to bring best practices and training to our partners and customers across Africa. With the support of AWS, we will close the gap and ensure that we help companies improve their operation, storage and access to data while maintaining a high level of security”.

According to Maureen Lonergan, vice president of AWS training and certification, “Organizations need people with cloud skills to help them transform their business. There is a growing demand for IT professionals with AWS Cloud skills. AWS Training and Certification, along with our AWS training partners like elev8, aim to equip builders of today and tomorrow with the knowledge they need to leverage the power of the AWS Cloud. AWS Training, designed by AWS experts, teaches in-demand cloud skills and best practices and helps learners prepare for AWS certification exams to advance their careers and transform their organizations.

elev8 is committed to having a positive social impact on the communities we work with. In partnership with governments, businesses and leading tech companies, elev8 delivers transformative digital education and training programs that equip workers with the digital skills essential to succeed in tech roles.
