CloudCheckr first introduced a ’60 in 60′ program back in 2018 and achieved more than 80 certifications in the 60 days. This summer, the team decided to expand the program and encouraged employees in every department, from DevOps to Information Security to Sales and Marketing, to become certified with AWS. As a long-standing AWS partner, CloudCheckr’s customers expect development teams to stay up-to-date on new services. However, the company extended this commitment company-wide, and now over 65% of CloudCheckr employees have at least one certification.

CloudCheckr is also working to achieve two new AWS competencies, DevOps and Data & Analytics, adding to their existing Security, Government, Cloud Management Tools, and Microsoft Workloads competencies. To keep up with the current pace of innovation, CloudCheckr continues to ensure its teams are equipped with the right skills to improve its CMx platform and offer the best solution for large enterprise, public sector, and managed services.

“CloudCheckr’s competency and certification achievements are evidence of our competitive edge in the AWS partner ecosystem, and we can say that all employees are thoroughly knowledgeable about the platform and industry,” Fitts said. “We look forward to growing our AWS partnership and continuing to provide opportunities for employees to expand their professional development at CloudCheckr.”
