AWS re/Start program

Launch a career in technology with Amazon Web Services - AWS re/Start

AWS re/Start is a free part time skills development program to jump-start your career working in cloud computing. A technology background is not required to apply, and the program is focused on unemployed and underemployed individuals.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technology services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS).
