The Information & eGovernment Authority (IGA) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) signed a partnership in April 2017 with the objective to reduce costs and boost the efficiency and development of skills across its present and future workforce.
Tamkeen has agreed with the IGA to subsidize 100% of the AWS Training for all national IT workforce within the Government of Bahrain.
