Yapang translates as ‘pathway’ from the Dunghutti language belonging to the First Australian peoples from the Macleay Valley of New South Wales.
The program is just that – a pathway for people from a range of diverse backgrounds (such as First Australians, women or veterans) who might not otherwise get the opportunity to start a career in digital technology.
Through the Yapang Initiative, learners will be provided with a world-class foundation for that journey with education, training, employment and career support.
The Program has been developed to address the two sets of interrelated needs:
The Yapang Initiative AWS re/Start Program has been carefully designed to provide learners with a set of courses to build their cloud skills and capabilities – and assumes no prior experience with cloud technology. Each cohort of learners, supported by professional mentors and accredited trainers, completes a 12-week training featuring real-world scenario-based learning, hands-on labs, and coursework. Potential Employers are invited to meet the learners whilst they are undertaking the course and will have the option to employ the learners as they graduate.
This portion of the course provides a foundational understanding of key IT concepts and practices needed to learn and use cloud technology.
This portion of the course introduces core AWS Cloud tools and services providing the learner with a working knowledge of the concepts behind cloud computing, AWS Cloud offerings, and the AWS environment.
AWS System Operations
This portion of the course is highly practical and guides learners in the use of AWS technology as a system operations team member.
When the course is complete, learners will sit for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam. learners will receive a voucher to cover the cost of the certification exam as a part of the Program. The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam is intended for individuals who have the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively demonstrate an overall understanding of the AWS Cloud. The certification provides learners with a validation of their learning outcomes, including the following aspects:
The exam is in multiple choice format which takes 90mins to complete in an independent testing centre, or as an online proctored exam.
Learners will be provided with access to practice exams to enable them to be confident of their knowledge levels before undertaking the actual test.
Once learners earn their Certification, there are a range of further study and certification options that they can pursue as their interests and experience grows. See more here: https://aws.amazon.com/certification/
The course is offered free of charge to learners.
