Nordcloud isn’t stopping at 500 AWS certifications

AWS 500 certified

Nordcloud has reached another Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) milestone by achieving over 500 collective AWS certifications.

What does this actually mean?

Nordcloud is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Managed Service Provider and Authorised Training Partner. As an AWS partner of choice, we prioritise upskilling in AWS within our own organisation, supporting our talent as they learn new AWS skills and thereby achieve certifications.

Certifications programmes are tailored to the individual needs of our Senior IT talent. We ask our people which courses they want to take, and they select their specialisations, essentially directing their own development paths

Why does Nordcloud prioritise AWS certifications?

Growing and strengthening our AWS expertise is part of our agile approach to learning – and making sure we always know more than we did last year.

The rapid growth in the number of AWS certifications in Nordcloud is an exciting reflection of two of our major priorities:

  • We help customers achieve results on AWS

We see 60% growth in our AWS business year to year. As an AWS partner of choice, deep technical expertise allows us to leverage AWS skills to help customers like Finnair, T-Mobile and Raffeisen Bank International win results.

Achieving more certificates means having more skills available to satisfy our clients, and we are committed to maintaining our proven certified expertise.

  • We invest in our people

Upskilling is more than a buzzword at Nordcloud. We have our own in-house training department and make multi-million-dollar investments in our people. We prioritise rapid and high-quality growth – broadening and deepening our talents’ technical expertise and furthering their individual career goals.

Attracting skilled people to work with us on AWS projects is a priority at Nordcloud, as is advancing the careers of our talent once they’re here.

"The rapid growth in the number of AWS certifications at Nordcloud really shows our priorities: to continue to work with great clients and to be an employer of choice for people who want to work with AWS. We’re building the most talented and passionate team in cloud, and our AWS expertise is a key part of that direction."

- Peter Bakker, AWS Partner Manager at Nordcloud

After achieving a specific accreditation, Nordcloudians continue on with a programme of upskilling and training. Plus, we don’t count business certifications in these stats – team members who achieve AWS certifications are actively delivering on live and important AWS projects.

Cloud native approach

This is a cloud native approach to learning and upskilling talent. We aren’t teaching old dogs new tricks, agile growth is our culture – that’s why it’s happening so fast. 

350 Nordcloudians enrolled to be certified in H1 2022 alone. We were at 300 AWS certifications in late 2021 - we’re now soaring past 500 and have no plans to slow down.

In fact, we’re already closing in on 600 and counting.
