REDMOND, Wash. — March 12, 2020 — XtremeLabs, LLC, a provider of hands-on virtual labs for learning organizations and individual learners, and John Wiley & Sons, Inc., a global leader in research and education, announced today a new partnership that will bring easily accessible, virtual hands-on labs to learners as they prepare to take their certification exams.
Wiley launched the XtremeLabs AWS Certified Solutions Architect virtual lab on its Wiley Efficient Learning platform on February 4, 2020. This is the first of several upcoming collaborations between the two companies for Wiley’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) course and study materials so that learners pursuing cloud technology exam prep and certification have another way to learn and practice their skills. The Wiley Efficient Learning online methodology is built around a “bite-sized” content framework, leveraging text, video, and multimedia elements, including the hands-on learning labs built by XtremeLabs.
“We are excited to launch our portfolio of AWS Virtual Learning Labs on the Wiley Efficient Learning Platform,” says Ahmar Abbas, CEO of XtremeLabs LLC. “There is tremendous demand for skilled talent with expertise in cloud and cloud services, and we are excited to work with the team at Wiley to prepare the next generation workforce.”
“Our partnership with XtremeLabs allows our learners to not only practice the knowledge they’ve gained in our AWS courses for their exams, but also acquire practical applications of that knowledge for their future careers,” says Dan Wood, Vice President, Wiley Efficient Learning. “Especially among technology industries facing massive skills gaps, it’s more important than ever to provide real-world experience alongside test prep resources.”
