Cloud Computing Higher National Certificate/Diploma
The purpose of the Higher National Certificate (HNC) and Higher National Diploma (HND) Cloud Computing qualifications is to equip students with cloud computing skills, knowledge and the understanding necessary to be job ready in the cloud computing field. The courses are awarded by Pearson UK and developed in collaboration with Amazon Web Services Educate.
The HNC and HND course content is closely aligned with the needs of employers, professional bodies, vendors and higher education for a skilled future workforce with a range of modules to cater for a range of progression plans.
Students will study the HNC (Level 4) course during the first year of study and upon successful completion of the HNC qualification students can progress on to the HND (Level 5) course. The HNC qualification has been aligned with the Cloud Practitioner Certification from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the Cloud Support Associate job role. The HND qualification includes foundational content which can help students to prepare for both the AWS Certified Solutions Architect and the AWS Certified Developer exams at Associate Level.
