The Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have launched a cloud training programme to upskill, train and certify Abu Dhabi-based small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The programme will equip SMEs with in-demand cloud skills to help accelerate the digital transformation of their organisations.
The SME-targeted training programme has been designed to help businesses stay ahead in the digital economy. AWS-authorised training partners will work with training programme participants to analyse skill gaps, create a customised learning journey and deliver a comprehensive cloud training strategy. Participants will also gain access to digital on-demand AWS Training content, pre- and post-programme assessments, and monthly reporting.
The Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development is supporting the initiative through outreach and engagement with SMEs in Abu Dhabi.
Who can take part?
Individuals employed in SMEs based in Abu Dhabi are eligible to take part in the program.
