On Wednesday we announced that U.S. veterans covered under a GI Bill are now eligible to have their AWS Certification exam fees reimbursed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Military members returning from active duty can face lots of challenges—including finding a new job or even a whole new career. Cloud IT offers one promising path forward. Our hope is that easier access to our certification exam, combined with the unique talents veterans already possess, will open up even more career possibilities for them. (It’s also a benefit that the vast network of Amazonians with a military background—also know as Amazon Warriors—might find interesting.)

You can read more about how to take advantage of the new benefit on the AWS Blog—or learn about all our cloud certifications on the AWS website.
