AWS Careers

In collaboration with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), TACC announced a statewide initiative enabling access to cloud computing education courses and certifications for students in community colleges, as part of the Texas Reskilling & Upskilling through Education (TRUE) initiative. This statewide initiative aims to train, upskill, and certify 50,000 Texans, over the next 3 years, to qualify for AWS cloud computing jobs in their local communities.

In support of this initiative, AWS is committed to equipping TACC with professional development, technical training, and certification exams for those educators, instructors, and faculty who will begin teaching AWS cloud computing courses to their students starting next fall. AWS education programs provide education institutions with a ready-to-teach cloud computing curriculum that prepares students for industry-recognized AWS Certifications to qualify for local in-demand cloud jobs. Institutions across the state are invited to participate.
