AWS re/Start is a full-time, skills development program that prepares individuals for an entry-level professional position in the cloud. Through real-world, scenario-based learning, hands-on labs, and coursework, learners gain the technical skills they need for junior cloud roles.
AWS re/Start also focuses on building professional skills such as adaptive communication, time management, and collaboration. The program’s mission is to build a diverse pipeline of entry-level cloud talent.
AWS re/Start focuses on two key technical areas IT Fundamentals and AWS Cloud. IT Fundamentals covers topics for support, operations, and automation roles such as Linux, networking, security, programming, Python and databases. AWS Cloud Fundamentals that highlights AWS core services, from introductory level to more in depth hands on operational procedures.
The technical portion of the curriculum is predominantly hands on and includes the end-to-end completion of a project from ideation to reporting, in order to exercise real life processes. In addition to technical skills, AWS re/Start teaches soft skills to prepare learners to succeed in a professional environment by preparing them to think critically, build multi-level projects, team dynamics, project planning, communication, and collaboration.
AWS re/Start cohorts are delivered in-person or in a virtual instructor led delivery for increased flexibility.
“It's a great way of helping to increase diversity and inclusion within the industry it's a chance to get good, enthusiastic engineers into our workforce and it’s a great way to give opportunities to people who wouldn’t ordinarily come into the industry.”
“The alumni that we have recruited from the AWS restart program are delivering solutions for our clients. They get incredible feedback and they contribute significantly to our organization internally”
“It's become more important to hire and grow junior individuals, because it's actually really difficult to hire really experienced people at small company money.”
Through coursework and hands-on labs, using real world scenarios, learners can gain the technical skills they need for entry to mid-level cloud roles.
AWS re/Start also provides learners with professional skills training like resume and interview coaching to prepare them for employer meetings and job interviews.
