What Have People Said About Skill Builder?
“I work for Siemens Digital Industries Software, who has a strategic partnership with AWS. In my role, I liaise with Global Alliance Partners. Understanding AWS offerings and technology helps me lead productive discussions with AWS. I took the AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials digital training in AWS Skill Builder to get a better grasp on cloud concepts. I went through the material in-between my meetings and could jump back in anytime. I needed to understand the basics quickly, which was exactly what Skill Builder helped me achieve.”
“As I studied, I used AWS Skill Builder a lot. For every certification, I looked up all available resources in Skill Builder that related to the certification, and went through the material. I was really surprised at how well the material is thought out and curated. It’s an intuitive ecosystem that just makes sense. My “four in four” approach wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.”
