Since the onset of the war in Ukraine, more than 7.5 million people have fled their homes seeking safety and stability in neighbouring nations. Ukrainians that sought refuge in other countries and those who remain in the country face challenges most people can only imagine—separation from family, abandoned careers, language barriers, and legal hurdles. From people who had established careers to those who were just getting started in technology, many Ukrainians are seeking training programs to help them begin careers in new countries. Cloud computing is a fast-growing industry and many companies and organizations migrating to the cloud need a cloud-trained workforce.
To help Ukrainians begin or grow a career in technology, Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched IT Skills 4U, a free comprehensive workforce-development initiative to provide Ukrainians around the world with AWS Cloud skills training and career support services. IT Skills 4U is accessible via a website, available in Ukrainian, Polish, and English, where learners can find training courses, AWS Certification opportunities, and career support services. The courses and workforce resources are designed for individuals with any level of experience—whether they have little to no tech background or they are experienced information technology (IT) professionals looking for additional certifications, advanced courses, or career placement support. After completing a brief self-assessment of their skills, learners will receive personalized learning plans with recommended training courses.
