LA-Area community college Cloud Computing Certificate profiled on KTTV-11

SMC Professor Howard Stahl with students Brenda Rosas and Michael Brown, on the In Depth television show, with host Hal Eisner

Several local community college students were interviewed about the new cloud computing certificate that has been co-created by the LA-Area community colleges and Amazon Web Services (AWS), as the KTTV-11 In Depth show explored the career paths and salaries in information technology.  The newly created program, started at Santa Monica College (SMC), and rolling out at all 19 of the LA-Area community colleges, is the latest example of industry-education alignment that is helping businesses find talent, students find well-paying career opportunities, and colleges perform at a higher level in terms of providing skills to students that businesses value.
