Tech career opportunities for Bahraini jobseekers

MANAMA, September 12, 2021

ThinkSmart, a leading ICT training provider, has announced a collaborative effort with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide free cloud computing skills development and job training through the AWS re/Start programme in Bahrain. 
AWS re/Start is a 12-week training programme that covers fundamental AWS Cloud skills as well as practical career skills, such as interviewing and resume writing, to help individuals prepare for entry-level cloud roles. The first AWS re/Start cohort is scheduled to begin in October.
ThinkSmart CEO Ahmed Al Hujairy said: “Bahrain adopted the Cloud First Policy long time back and the public and private sectors have chosen cloud as their first option. The need for qualified Cloud Engineers has risen exponentially; the demand is very high, but the supply is not matching it, yet.
"ThinkSmart, as an authorised training partner of AWS has been working hard to skill Bahraini youth and enterprises with AWS cloud. With re/start programme, there is an opportunity for jobseekers to gain the skills needed for tech careers and it comes with employability skills.“
The programme helps prepare unemployed and underemployed individuals for new careers in technology through scenario-based exercises, hands-on labs, and coursework, students build Linux, Python, networking, security, and relational database skills. 
It also covers the cost for learners to take the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, validating their cloud skills with an industry-recognised credential.-TradeArabia News Service
