This course includes the fundamentals of cloud computing, core AWS services and will provide an introduction to security and architecture on the platform to help you prepare for the certification.

With this online course, you will use AWS services to design, build, secure, and maintain analytics solutions that provide insight from data.

This course will provide foundational knowledge of integrating machine learning into tools and applications. You will be able to build TensorFlow models using Computer Vision, Convolutional Neural Networks, Natural Language Processing, and real-world image data and strategies.

With this course, you will learn how to design, implement, deploy, and maintain Machine Learning (ML) solutions for given business problems.

  • Access to content sourced directly from AWS in partnership with AIICT

  • Take your career to the next level with skill assessments to skill up in the job you want

  • Job-ready personal development skills

  • Challenges with step-by-step instructions and access to pre-configured AWS environments

Enrolment information

Basic understanding of statistics and mathematics or relevant experience in the industry is required for this program. However, even if you are relatively new to IT, with the right attitude and appetite to learn, you will be able to join the course.

You will begin your study in a cohort with your fellow students – from there, you will have twelve months to complete the course, entirely at your own pace.

Tech Requirements

While there are no prerequisites for the course, you will need to have access to a laptop or desktop computer with a reliable internet connection.

AIICT accepts no responsibility for personal electronic devices that are utilised for the course and undertakes no responsibility to investigate their damage.


The course includes four exams across four certifications that need to be undertaken in-person at a testing centre near you, or in an online proctored environment. Exam fees are included in the cost of the course.

AIICT provides you with exam vouchers in order to register for these exams.

What happens next?

A course advisor will call to chat about your course and set up a time for you to get started

You will then be invited to complete the Student Enrolment process which includes a Pre-Enrolment Profile

Once your enrolment process has been submitted, your course advisor will contact you

If all your documentation is in order, you will then be invited to attend an online orientation

Being highly technical, complex tech fields, those looking to enter the data and AI industry are recommended to pursue formal training in either area. You’re more likely to gain employer attention with recognised certifications under your belt, along with a strong portfolio of your previous experience.

Those in data science are often encouraged to specialise. Though your skills are applicable to any field, employers will typically seek out industry-specific experience, making it critical to hone your skills in your preferred sector. As mentioned, having at least a basic concept of machine learning and AI can help boost your employment value in the field.

Those in AI are required to build their knowledge deep learning, neural networks, and machine learning to start exploring entry-level opportunities in the job or internship market. Of course, a fundamental understanding of big data and data analytics can help broaden your horizons.

On top of formal education, aspiring data and AI experts are also encouraged to expand their skills through personal practice. Plenty of online communities exist to help you learn from and collaborate with other like-minded professionals, these including Stack Overflow, Kaggle, and Dataquest for those in data science; and GitHub, Global AI Community, and r/machine learning (Reddit) for those into AI.

Data and AI professionals require high levels of both technical and non-technical skills.

Those in either field need a strong grasp of various programming languages, including (but not limited to) Python, SQL, Java, R, and C++. A strong knowledge of analytical tools is also necessary for data scientists, these including software such as SAS, Hadoop, Pig, Hive, and Spark. Artificial intelligence experts are expected to have an advanced knowledge of machine learning and deep learning, along with a close familiarity of programming frameworks such as TensorFlow, NumPy, and SciPy. Plenty of these technical skills may overlap between fields, helping you flexibly find work within either sector – though having experience in both areas can help bolster your opportunities on the job market.

Both professions require expertise in mathematics (i.e. algebra, statistics, probability), and excellent skills in communication, business planning, analytical thinking.

Data refers to the information we produce through computer systems; from text, multimedia, and programs we create, to our communications and transactions via social media and online services. Artificial intelligence is the development of “smart” machines that, through the use of data, are able to mimic human-like tasks and behaviour. Such technology is gaining widespread use in the impending age of automation, where AI systems are increasingly adopted to handle menial, repetitive business processes.

The two hold a symbiotic relationship, in which data science tactics are used to bolster development of AI technologies, while AI technologies are used to improve the processes of data science and analysis. Those working in the latter field are typically termed as “data scientists”, who spend much of their time cleaning and extracting valuable insights from both structured and unstructured datasets. Those working in the former field are generally considered “AI specialists” or AI developers, focused on the programming and science behind crafting “intelligent” code or machinery.
