ACG offers a wide breadth of in-depth courses spanning the three major cloud providers, Linux, and other open-source technologies like Kubernetes, Terraform, and more. With this offer, students will also be able to practice their skills in real-world environments through unlimited access to ACG’s 1,600+ hands-on labs.
“Now more than ever, enterprises need a talent pool that can navigate the cloud infrastructures integral to their business operations,” Kroonenburg continued. “With this program, we aim to contribute to closing the tech skills gap that’s hindering companies’ acceleration of cloud migration and maturity. Further, we strive to increase diversity in technology careers while reducing that same skills gap.”
