Tech Data wants to train partners on Amazon cloud

Tech Data wants more than  50 partners to take part in its fully funded Amazon Web Services (AWS) training and enablement programme.

The initiative will help partners rise up through the tiers of AWS’ partner programme,

Tom Ellis, senior manager for AWS at Tech Data UK, said the programmer was an value-add that it’s delivering for partners who want to take advantage of the growth his company is seeing with AWS cloud services.

“It’s important that we provide the right enablement for partners to help them get through the AWS APN programme tiers quickly, providing them with the competencies to fit services to customer needs and desired business outcomes”, he said.

Tech Data said that the aim is to get partners qualified as an AWS Select Partner within four months of starting the course.

The training will be provided through online skills platform A Cloud Guru.
