This Week In AWS Community: AI Ready Initiative

2 min readNov 24, 2023

This week Amazon announces its AI Ready initiative to train 2 million people globally in artificial intelligence by 2025. Of course, I have all of the details here!

Artificial intelligence is here to stay and will affect every single field of the workforce. Amazon recognizes that most workers don’t have the AI skills necessary to prepare for the future of work. Below are the 3 initiatives within AI Ready

The AI Ready Initiative has 3 components:

Outside of these three initiatives, you can check out AWS Educate and AWS SkillBuilder. AWS Educate has video training at different levels and its own immersive labs. You do not need a credit card on file to use the select AWS Educate labs. Read my AWS Educate post to learn more about this.

AWS SkillBuilder has the AWS certification trainings and webinars along with different AWS-related training. There is a free version and a paid version.

You will need to create an account to use both AWS Educate

I want to stress how this is a global initiative NOT just limited to the US only. If you’re reading this, you can participate.
