This Amazon program is helping people get training, certification and jobs in cloud computing

Since 2017, AWS re/Start has partnered with workforce development programs around the country, like Per Scholas, to provide free coursework and cover fees in order for participants to get certified in AWS cloud computing, explains program director Kevin Kelly. AWS re/Start aims to help unemployed and underemployed people, as well as candidates with no tech background or limited experience in a traditional job setting, such as military service members re-entering the civilian workforce, gain an entry-level cloud computing job upon graduation.

The program’s 12-week intensive course, which provides both skills training as well as professional development counseling, launches in five new cities this week: New York City; Newark, New Jersey; Martinsville, Virginia; San Jose, California; and San Francisco.

With the expansion, the AWS re/Start offerings will have active cohorts in seven U.S. cities, including Boston and Washington, D.C., as well as several locations internationally. Read more via CNBC
