About the Curriculum

The AWS re/Start Curriculum focuses on two key technical areas, IT Fundamentals and AWS Cloud, to help learners succeed in entry-level cloud computing jobs. The technical portion of the curriculum is predominantly hands-on through real-world, scenario-based exercises, labs, and coursework and includes the end-to-end completion of a project, from ideation to reporting, in order to exercise real-life processes. In addition to technical skills, AWS re/Start teaches soft skills to prepare learners to succeed in a professional environment by preparing them to think critically, build multi-level projects, team dynamics, project planning, communication, and collaboration.

Please note for graduates with less than two years of existing tech professional experience, while you’ll be on the path to a cloud engineer position, your first role after the training will generally be an entry-level tech support role in order to get the experience needed to advance into Cloud positions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of jobs can I get after completing this training

Upon completion of the program, AWS re/Start graduates are suitable candidates for entry-level cloud roles in areas such as cloud operations, site reliability, tier 1 infrastructure support, or devops.

How can the course be free? Are there hidden fees?

Most people who learn about us think: “Too good to be true.” We know it seems that way, but it’s true. Our services are provided at no cost to you, using funds we raise from foundations, corporations, government and generous individuals.

The costs you can prepare for include transportation or childcare—expenses that take care of you so you can focus on your studies.

I receive unemployment insurance benefits or other benefits that require me to spend time working or looking for work. Can I still enroll?

Yes. Per Scholas courses are approved for people receiving unemployment insurance, as well as other benefits that would ordinarily require them to spend time working or looking for work. Your benefits should not be affected. If you have questions or concerns about your situation, please contact us.

Why is my location not eligible for National Remote?

As a state licensed training provider focused on providing technical training, we are subject to state-specific education licensing requirements.  As we expand our National Remote training to all 50 states, there are some states we are not yet able to train learners from. Since you currently reside in one of these states, we are unable to include you in training opportunities with Per Scholas at this time.

Is there a learner pre-training income policy?

Yes, Per Scholas learners must meet the pre-training income policy requirements. View our Learner Pre-Training Income Policy here.

Will pre-work be required before enrolling in the course?

To ensure learners are prepared with the skills, abilities, and opportunities for success in courses that do not require existing knowledge, Per Scholas requires learners to complete Pre-Work to be eligible for enrollment.

This ensures AWS re/Start learners, with or without previous experience, are best prepared on Day 1 of their course. Our instruction team has also pulled together additional Optional Pre-Work for learners to support your success best. This is not required for enrollment with Per Scholas but is highly recommended due to the fast-paced, rigorous nature of our bootcamp-style training.

Do you offer weekend or night classes?

This course, AWS re/Start, is a full-time course and requires you make arrangements to make a full-time commitment and attend class every day.

I meet other requirements, but am not a U.S. citizen and haven't received my work authorization yet. Can I still apply?

Unfortunately, we cannot process your application until you have received clearance to work in the U.S. However, if you are experiencing problems, we can refer you to other organizations that may be able to help.

I have a disability. Can you accommodate me?

We comply fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other relevant laws and regulations. Please contact us at [email protected] to discuss your specific situation and needs.

Does Per Scholas have a non-discrimination policy?

We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or national origin. See our full non-discrimination statement here.
