On 6th October 2021, Amazon Web Services introduced a new learning program called AWS re/Start in India for learners from any background to build careers in cloud computing. The duration of the program is 12 weeks, where there is no requirement for any technology experience. It provides job training and helps in developing skills required for cloud computing jobs free of cost.
It is a skills-based training program, where the modules are designed to cover fundamental AWS cloud skills. The program also includes preparing the learners to improve their practical career skills such as writing resumes or attending interviews. The course enables its learners for entry-level cloud computing jobs in multiple domains such as operations, site reliability, infrastructure support, etc. Additionally, the program covers the cost for the learners to attend the AWS certified cloud practitioner certificate exam to validate their cloud computing skills along with a certification that would be industry-recognized.
AWS re/Start India will be launching in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Pune, and Thiruvananthapuram. Five local organizations that include EduBridge Learning, Edujobs Academy, iPrimed Education, Rooman.Net, and Vinsys IT Services will collaborate with this program for providing virtual training sessions. This collaboration will also aid in connecting the learners with potential employers.
Capgemini is financially aiding AWS re/Start program and is looking forward to hiring program graduates for various cloud computing roles. Capgemini will work closely with EduBridge Learning for the same. The CHRO of Capgemini India, Pallavi Tyagi, stated that the company is committed to shaping the talent landscape in our country by providing career opportunities for individuals to transition into high demanding roles while they build their careers. The company aims to obtain recruits to shape the future of cloud and technology job markets.
The head of AWS training and certification India, Amit Mehta, Amazon Internet Services Pvt. Ltd. (AISPL), stated that the industry demand for cloud adoption is higher than the number of cloud-skilled workers available. Organizations struggle to hire talents required to implement cloud services. To achieve this, more people must be trained from non-traditional sources. Hence, this program aims to bring new hires into the cloud ecosystem, where the unemployed or people looking forward to changing their career paths can gain the required skill sets to enter this domain.
The program is available in many countries such as Australia, New Zealand, UK, the USA, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Finland, Spain, France, Germany, and many more.
