Makintouch Consulting, an information technology (IT) integrated capacity-building firm, has partnered Amazon Web Services (AWS) to improve provision of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions and training in Nigeria.
Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Ifesanya Oluwatoyin, while speaking on the partnership, said the company had built a robust relationship with AWS, which provides individuals and AWS Cloud technology training courses designed to help them acquire high proficiency in the digital cloud transformation and in turn earn them lucrative job opportunities.
She said that in recent times, the firm had finalised plans to stay ahead of the curve by continually evolving its technology to meet the ever-changing needs of the rapidly developing global enabling learning environment through its partnership with AWS.
The AWS Partner Network allows customers to easily identify partners that provide training, which will enhance their knowledge of the AWS platform.
With this announcement, Makintouch Consulting becomes the first APN training partner on AWS in Nigeria.
The AWS training is developed and will be maintained by AWS experts to ensure that the content reflects current best practices and give learners the opportunity to engage live and their questions answered by an authorised instructor.
Following high demand from companies and organisations, the firm will deliver training based on the AWS pathway from the foundation, associate, professional and specialty levels.
Oluwatoyin also added that companies in Nigeria recognise the need to invest in cloud, saying: “We are thrilled to work with AWS to deliver the skills, which will help individuals design, deploy and operate infrastructure and applications in the cloud.”
The AWS training and certifications will help businesses to scale and become proficient with AWS capabilities through immersive hands-on learning experiences.
She said the partnership would resolve challenges, improve competency-based learning to enhance effectiveness with a competitive cutting-edge approach through provision of quality assured training and globally certified courses.
Makintouch consulting, which has been in the industry for over 13 years, has been entrenched in assured skills development and service delivery in IT technology and business management solutions.
