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.
LAEDC is pleased to be a partner in this program, through our work in Center for a Competitive Workforce.
