  • Module 0: Course Introduction
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce the AWS Academy Cloud Foundations course to students
  • Module 1: Cloud Concepts Overview
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to cloud computing, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and what AWS offers.
  • Module 2: Cloud Economics and Billing
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the business advantages for moving to the cloud. The module begins by explaining the pricing philosophy of AWS and the overall concept of Total Cost of Ownership. These concepts are important for your students to understand because they might need to rely on them in their careers as cloud practitioners.
  • Module 3: AWS Global Infrastructure Overview
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Global Infrastructure.
  • Module 4: AWS Cloud Security
    • The purpose of this module is to provide an introduction to the AWS approach to security. This module includes the controls in the AWS environment, and some of the AWS products and features that customers can use to meet their security objectives.
  • Module 5: Networking and Content Delivery
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to three fundamental AWS networking and content delivery services: Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Route 53, and Amazon CloudFront. Students will have the opportunity to label a virtual private cloud (VPC) network architecture diagram, design a VPC, watch how a VPC is built, and finally build a VPC themselves.
  • Module 6: Compute
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce many of the compute services that Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers. These services include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), AWS Lambda, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).
  • Module 7: Storage
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the various options for storing data with AWS. The module describes four different storage technologies. The module focuses on the storage services that are described so that students can decide which storage service to use for various use cases. Storage is one of the core AWS service areas, and it is important for your students to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each technology. The module concludes with an activity that gives students an opportunity to apply what they learned to a real-world scenario. After providing this conceptual foundation, the module describes the following storage services:
      • Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) 
      • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) 
      • Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS)
      • Amazon Simple Storage Service Glacier
  • Module 8: Databases
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to four of the most commonly used AWS database services. The module describes four different database services. The module focuses on the database services that are described so that students can decide which database service to use for various use cases. Databases are one of the core AWS service areas, and it is important for your students to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each service. The module concludes with an activity that gives students an opportunity to apply what they learned to a real-world scenario. After providing this conceptual foundation, the module describes the following database services:
      • Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) 
      • Amazon DynamoDB 
      • Amazon Redshift
      • Amazon Aurora
  • Module 9: Cloud Architecture
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to designing and building cloud architectures according to best practices.
  • Module 10: Automatic Scaling and Monitoring
    • The purpose of this module is to introduce students to three fundamental AWS services – Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Auto Scaling, and Amazon CloudWatch – which can be used together to build dynamic, scalable architectures.

  • Virtual Live Class Saturday Evening: 07:00pm – 09:00pm (Class duration is 10 weeks)
  • For every student who does well, a voucher for a discount will be offered to finish the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Certification(CLF-02). This is not something that UoM can manage. The AWS Academy is in charge of it

There are no formal prerequisites for this program, However you should have a good understanding about basic IT. However, selection for the course is subject to the best practices of the University of Moratuwa and CITeS - Training & Development Division.
