Build a successful career in cloud computing as a military veteran.

The AWS Military Apprenticeship program helps members of the military community—veterans and their spouses—train while at work, in high-demand areas like cloud computing. Even without any previous technical experience, our apprentices gain valuable skills through on-the-job training that prepares them to join the world-class technical teams at AWS.


As part of the AWS Military Apprenticeship, you’ll have the opportunity to receive 10-20 weeks of paid, full-time training followed by up to 12 months of paid, on-the-job training. You’ll work alongside some of the best and brightest minds in the industry, gaining knowledge, certification, and placement at one of the most innovative technology companies in the world.


What we’re looking for:

  • You have military experience in communications, intelligence, cyber security or have industry-recognized IT certifications.
  • You were active military within the last 6 months, a Guard/Reserve member, veteran, or you are a military spouse.
  • You have an active security clearance.
