ALGIM AWS Technical essentials for local government staff                                           


As local government moves more into the cloud environment, having the right skillset is imperative. 

This one-day online course is ideal for anyone in a technical role who wants to learn the fundamentals of identifying AWS services to make informed decisions about IT solutions. It covers the fundamental AWS concepts related to compute, database, storage, networking, monitoring and security.  

ALGIM has entered into an agreement with AWS to make this course available to all councils. This is to allow all local government to come together, learn together and build a community for AWS cloud.  

By joining the training through ALGIM, there are no minimum group sizes required to attend. The training will be delivered by an AWS trainer. Councils may only have one participant able to join, making the proposition to attend AWS direct training very cost-effective.
