AWS re:Start Military Employee Taster Day

The AWS re:Start programme is a free, training, mentoring and work programme provided to military veterans, reservists and their spouses. AWS re:Start is designed to accommodate all levels of experience – even if you have no previous technical knowledge, you can still sign up!

You will complete 4 weeks of technical training classes, led by AWS certified instructors, followed by a work placement with a participating AWS partner and customer. The AWS re:Start team will help you find the right placement for you and your career goals.

On Wednesday 28th March AWS re:Start will be holding a free Employee Taster Day for military leavers to explore your possible future in cloud computing. You will be given the chance to talk to AWS re:Start graduates, possible employers and the partners of AWS re:Start and learn more about their roles within the course.

AWS re:Start Graduate Case Studies

Gareth Jones a former British Army Royal Signals Officer said  “Choosing to leave the military following a 12 year career was a daunting experience; I knew I wanted to work in the IT sector but was unsure of what roles would suit the skills I had gained in the military. The AWS re:Start Programme provided a fantastic overview of some of the core competencies required within the IT sector and how my existing experience could compliment these, as well as hands on experience of AWS itself. The course content and instruction was also flexible enough to allow those with more IT experience to push themselves further. As a direct result of the programme’s Networking Day that I am starting a placement with Splunk in the New Year as a pre-sales engineer, something I am very excited about. It was a fantastic experience and I have been raving about the course to over service leavers since and will continue to do so. Please keep up the great work. I hung up my uniform for the last time last week which was weird but start with Splunk on 15 Jan and am pretty excited.”
