Governor Steve Sisolak announced a strategic initiative with the Nevada Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation, the Nevada System of Higher Education, the Nevada Department of Education and Amazon Web Services to train, upskill and certify 2,500 Nevadans in cloud computing in the next three years.
The collaboration will provide access to cloud computing education courses and certifications through higher education and high schools across Nevada.
Nevada is one of the first states to have 3 or more state organizations collaborate together, strategically working with AWS. This will allow secondary and higher education institutions, with the support of the Governor’s office, to provide opportunities for individuals to learn employable skills in cloud computing.
AWS education programs provide education institutions with ready-to-teach, cloud computing curriculum that prepares students for industry-recognized AWS certifications.
Institutions across the state are invited to participate and will deliver education course offerings for students and adults to upskill and reskill to re-enter the workforce.
