AWS Educate Adds Cloud Learning Pathways for Students

Posted on: Oct 19, 2016

AWS Educate, a program that helps educators and students use real-world cloud technology in the classroom, now offers students cloud learning pathways. These learning tracks are made up of 30+ hours of curriculum across job families like Cloud Architect and Software Developer. The program also offers specialty AWS Educate Badges as add-ons to the pathways, for which students can achieve competency in specializations like IoT, start-up, and gaming.

The new release of AWS Educate also includes a Job Board of internships and entry-level cloud jobs from employers around the world. As students complete learning pathways, and earn AWS Educate badges, their achievements roll up into a profile that allows them to map their skills to relevant jobs, and easily submit that profile as an application to employers. As employers are looking for specific cloud skills, they are able to tap into AWS Educate’s members, who are following structured curriculum and gaining hands-on experience with cloud computing technologies.

AWS Educate is free for educational institutions, educators, and students to join, following AWS’s approval of their application. The new release of AWS Educate is available to students in the United States, Japan, China, Singapore, South Korea, and India. To learn more about AWS Educate, visit: http://www.awseducate.com.
