AWS Refactor Accreditation Program

Access to BluInsights is limited to customers and certified individuals. The accreditation program is based on three complementary levels of certifications. Each level grants access to different services.

AWS M2 Blu Age Refactor proposes an accreditation program for all interested individuals belonging to AWS customers, GSIs partners or ProServe teams. At the end of this program, enrolled members will be certified and autonomous to engage with modernization projects leveraging a proven methodology based on the AWS M2 Blu Age Refactor service. The program covers an extensive set of topics from pre-sales to delivery and may interest various profiles (non-exhaustive list):

  • Pre-sales & sales workforce
  • Technical assessment experts
  • Delivery workforce
  • Solution Architects
  • Project and Engagement Managers

The accreditation program is based on three complementary levels of certifications. 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
  • Project estimate (scope, milestones, budget)
  • POC or pilot definition
  • Fixed-Price SOW drafting
  • AWS Blu Age Refactor Questionnaire & FCD
  • Hands-on-experience with M2 Blu Age tooling: Shared Spaces, Code Base Assessment, Business, Transformation Center…

 

 

Level 1 – Assessor (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.

Pre-requisites

The enrolled members have to be GSI Partner individuals (registered with a professional AWS account) or AWS internal individuals.

NB: L1 trainings for GSI individuals will be released by Q4 2022. They are currently restricted to internal AWS individuals. Despite this, to avoid the wait and to schedule something earlier, you could form a group of 15+ individuals for which we could work around this.

 

Duration

A few hours (at your own pace).

How to get certified?
  1. Self-paced online trainings
  2. Send a mail to Dorine Ngango dngango@amazon.com and aws-bluage-accreditation@amazon.com to inform the M2 Blu Age team to automatically register for upcoming L2 trainings (dates and locations depending on candidates’ numbers and locations)
