MRU, AWS partner to offer AWS re/Start program

November 11, 2021
Mount Royal University’s Faculty of Continuing Education and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have partnered to offer AWS re/Start through support from the Calgary Economic Development’s EDGE UP 2.0 program. Students in the 12-week AWS re/Start program will be prepared for entry-level jobs in cloud computing. The program is offered at no cost and focuses on providing training to un- or underemployed individuals from the oil and gas sector or a related sector. Participants will learn about topics such as cloud operations, site reliability, and infrastructure support through scenario-based learning, hands-on labs, and coursework. “The AWS re/Start training program is an innovative way to meet labour demands by providing an opportunity for job-specific training that supports displaced workers,” said MRU Interim Provost and VP, Academic Elizabeth Evans.
