The Edo State government has partnered with leading American companies, Amazon, to provide top-of-the-range cloud computing training to undergraduates in the state, as part of efforts to prepare them for in-demand cloud jobs in the Information Technology (IT) and innovation space.

The initiative, according to the programme lead, Edo Innovation Hub, Asemota Precious, is a product of the synergy between the state government and global technology companies to boost the state’s tech ecosystem.

Institutions to benefit from the initiative include University of Benin (UNIBEN); Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma; Auchi Polytechnic; Edo State Polytechnic Usen; Benson Idahosa University; Igbinedion University and Edo University, Iyamho. The training is open to students with interest in coding and programming and would expose them to the latest knowledge in cloud computing, with which they can secure jobs anywhere in the world.

The training includes courses in Cloud Foundation, Developing architecting, Operations, Machine Learning and Data Analytics, and would be coordinated through the innovation hub. The students would be exposed to real-life scenarios through lectures, case studies, demonstrations, hand-on laboratories, and project works, among others.

Asemota noted that necessary arrangements have been made for the project, which will run on the Amazon Academy platform, adding that the training would commence in the next couple of months.

Executive Director of the Edo State Skills Development Agency (EdoJobs), Mrs. Ukinebo Dare, said the training would expose the participants to career opportunities in the global IT talent space, as the certifications they would get would make them marketable the world over.

“The training is being run in partnership with Amazon. We have a number of similar programmes running at the Edo Innovation Hub and we hope these undergraduates would make the best use of this opportunity,” she said.
