1.    Who is the course for?

This course is for those who’d like to learn cloud computing and gain a basic to intermediate level with deploying web applications using cloud services. The Cloud Computing for Web Developers Course is available as a specialization course for our Full-Stack Web Development Program, or it can be taken as a standalone course.

2.    What are the prerequisites and requirements for the course?

To successfully complete the course, you’ll need to be familiar with front- and backend web development. Preferably the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js).

Additionally, you’ll need:*

  • Interest in cloud computing
  • Written and spoken English proficiency at a B2 level or higher
  • A computer (macOS, Windows, or Linux) with a webcam, microphone, and an internet connection.
*Note that you will be required to invest some independent study time into familiarizing yourself with the tools you’ll use throughout the course, and learning how to use them. It is estimated that you will need to spend an additional 1-2 hours per week of extracurricular study time becoming comfortable with them.
3.    Which tools will I use and what are the costs?

You’ll be using the tools; LocalStack, GitHub, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

When signing up for AWS, you’ll need to provide a payment method (such as a credit card). But you’ll be able to take advantage of their Free Tier for the duration of the course.

4.    What are the minimum system requirements?

Compatible operating systems: Windows 11, macOS versions 10.13 and later, Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, or Fedora (Linux).

Questions? Contact us for more information on requirements for your specific operating system.

5.    Is the course 100% online?

Yes, the course is entirely asynchronous and online—so you can study when and wherever you’d like so long as you can get online and complete the course on time.

But this doesn’t mean the learning experience is isolated or lonely! You’ll have your mentor, tutor, and student advisor there to support you—as well as access to our active student community on Slack.

6.    Is the course content practical and hands-on?

We take a rigorously practical approach to learning. You’ll have the opportunity to apply everything you learn in practical ways. Every exercise builds up to a completed portfolio project that your mentor will review and that will show employers the in-demand skills you learn in the course.

7.    How long does it take to complete the course?

If you set aside 15-20 hours per week to study, you’ll complete the course in approximately two months (eight weeks). If you’re able to devote 30-40 hours per week, you can complete the course in about a month (four weeks).

8.    What’s included in the course tuition?

This course offers immersive training in the field of cloud computing—including expert-authored curriculum, hands-on projects, and personalized mentorship and support from experts in the field. Everything you need to stand out in the field as the specialist you’ll be.

9.    Are there payment plans available?

Yes, we offer two payment options for your specialization course. First, you can save a little money by paying your full tuition up front. If that’s not feasible, you can pay a set amount up front (varies depending on currency), and then the remainder in three monthly payments.

10.    Is the course accredited and what does ZFU-approved mean?

While the course is not university accredited, it does undergo a rigorous quality assurance and certification process with the ZFU (Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht)—the state body for distance learning in Germany.

This process ensures that the course meets a high stand for an excellent and effective learning experience.

On successful completion of this certification process, the course is assigned a unique approval number (7425122) which can be checked against a public register.
