Amazon will provide training opportunities through existing AWS-designed programs; as well as develop new courses to meet a wide variety of schedules and learning goals.
For years now, Amazon has been hinting with business and government leaders about they can work together; primarily to bridge the technical skills gap. In these conversations, there’s a mutual agreement about the importance of democratizing knowledge and making it available to all individuals—regardless of their background; education; or social status—the opportunity to build technical skills. That’s why it was announced at re:Invent 2020, that by 2025 Amazon Web Services (AWS) will help 29 million people globally grow their technical skills with free cloud computing skills training.

During the re:Invent session, Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF) was in attendance. He discussed the future workforce and how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected in-demand skills. The WEF’s work to bring workforce training needs to be top of the agenda.
As part of efforts to continue supporting the future workforce, Amazon are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to provide free cloud computing skills training to people from all walks of life and all levels of knowledge; in more than 200 countries and territories. There will be training opportunities through existing AWS-designed programs; as well as develop new courses to meet a wide variety of schedules and learning goals. The training ranges from self-paced online courses—designed to help individuals update their technical skills—to intensive upskilling programs that can lead to new jobs in the technology industry.
