Among the attendees were Mr Teerawut Thongphak, Deputy Secretary-General of the National Digital Economy and Society Committee, and Miss Ployrawee Krirkphankul, Director of the Digital Economy Driving Division at the National Digital Economy and Society Commission.

Emphasising the importance of digital education, the committee extensively discussed and considered the accreditation of various courses. These included the Good Practice Course, an Advanced Cloud Course tailored for Finance Professionals, a Database Planning and Design Course, a Data Analysis Course using Python, a Practice Leadership Course, an Audit Leadership Course, and a course specifically focused on creating a Data Lake.

This move reflected the commitment of the National Digital Economy and Society Committee to foster a skilled workforce capable of navigating the complexities of the digital age. The certification of these courses acknowledges their relevance and positions them as recognised and approved training programmes in the rapidly evolving digital landscape.

The Good Practice Course for Well-Architected is designed to provide professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to architect applications on the cloud computing platform. This accreditation ensured that the course aligns with industry best practices and standards, making it a valuable resource for individuals seeking expertise in cloud architecture.

The Advanced Cloud Course for Finance Professionals was tailored to meet the specific needs of finance professionals, recognising the unique challenges and requirements of the financial sector. With the financial industry increasingly relying on digital solutions, this course aims to equip professionals with the necessary skills to leverage cloud computing in financial applications securely and efficiently.

Accrediting a Database Planning and Design Course underscored the importance of robust data management strategies in the digital economy. As businesses generate and utilise vast amounts of data, professionals with expertise in designing and planning databases on cloud computing become essential for effective and scalable operations.

Furthermore, including a Data Analysis Course using Python highlighted the growing importance of data-driven decision-making in various industries. Python is a versatile programming language widely used for data analysis, and this course certification ensures that individuals can leverage Python for practical data interpretation and analysis.

The committee’s approval of a Practice Leadership Course and an Audit Leadership Course signified the recognition of the need for strong leadership in the digital domain. As organisations undergo digital transformations, leaders who can navigate complexities and drive innovation are crucial for success.

Finally, the certification of a course on creating a Data Lake on the cloud computing system addresses the increasing demand for professionals skilled in efficiently managing and utilising large volumes of data. Data Lakes, especially on cloud computing platforms, have become integral for organisations aiming to derive meaningful insights from their data.

The meeting, broadcasted through electronic media, showcased the committee’s commitment to transparency and accessibility. By leveraging digital platforms, the committee ensures that information about the accreditation process and the importance of these courses reaches a broader audience, further promoting the digital education agenda.

The certification of these digital courses marks a significant step in advancing the digital skills landscape in the country. The National Digital Economy and Society Committee’s commitment to endorsing courses that align with industry standards underscores the importance of staying ahead in the ever-evolving digital era.

As these courses become integral parts of the digital education ecosystem, professionals can look forward to acquiring cutting-edge skills that will not only benefit their careers but also contribute to the overall growth and competitiveness of the nation in the digital economy.
