Each level grants access to different tools and materials (slides, contracts samples, etc.). Incrementally, while going from Level 1 to Level 3, enrolled members will gain multiple skills:

  • Qualification and assessments of projects to serve the customer
  • Engagement models with a focus on Assess/Mobilize phases

  • AWS Mainframe Modernization Refactor Questionnaire & FCD
  • Hands-on-experience with AWS Blu Age tooling: Shared Spaces, Code Base Assessment, Business, Transformation Center...

Level 1 - Awareness (online, training)

This first level certification goal is to get a global vision of the program itself, the solution, and a high-level overview of the tools and the underlying method.
