Helping people to launch careers in the Cloud

AWS re/Start is a cohort-based workforce development training program that prepares individuals for careers in the cloud and connects them to potential employers. A technology background is not required to apply. The program is free to the learner and focused on helping unemployed or underemployed individuals launching a new career. AWS re/Start’s collaborating organisations support underrepresented groups, minorities, displaced individuals, young people, and more.
