VTTA and Amazon Cloud Computing Training Initiative Seeks to Help Fill Vermont Tech Talent Needs

Amazon is building a collaboration with the Vermont Department of Labor and the Vermont Technology Alliance to provide cloud computing training and education to thousands of learners statewide by 2024.

Through this initiative, the state of Vermont will work with the AWS Academy program to provide public high schools, colleges, and universities in Vermont with no-cost, ready-to-teach, cloud computing curriculum that prepares students for industry-recognized AWS Certifications. Educators at participating institutions will receive instructor training taught by AWS experts and access to AWS Certification exams at no cost. Students can also access self-paced online training courses and labs from AWS.

Amazon is looking to connect with Vermont-based companies who have a need for cloud-skilled talent. This could include networking, software development, programming, IT Service Management, Project Management, Data Analytics, and more.

The Amazon team would like to (1) understand the types of roles you are looking to fill and competencies you’re looking to hire for (2) get your feedback on how AWS curriculum and certifications map to those roles and competencies and (3) discuss opportunities to connect with the talent pipeline we’re building in Vermont at various stages of their development.

If you are interested in this opportunity and providing information on the type of roles your business needs, please contact [email protected], and we will connect you with the Amazon team.
