AWS Educate helps in learning cloud skills in more superficial ways that too at your own pace. For that, you only require an email address, not an Amazon account or any credit card.

AWS Emerging Talent Community

The ETC is the place to connect with others like you from around the globe who have committed to learning AWS Cloud skills. The community is your central hub to help advance your cloud skills and collaborate with members with similar interests and career goals. 

The ETC is a no-cost offering to all AWS Education Programs badge earners and offers many benefits to its members, such as:

  • Personalized content recommendations to continue your cloud learning journey.
  • AWS Certification preparation resources and guidance.
  • Networking and mentorship opportunities.
  • The opportunity to earn points along the way for participating in fun activities and challenges, and cash them in for AWS swag, exclusive member benefits, and more.  

Cloud communities empower you from others, gain support when you’re stuck, and celebrate your achievements. All learners that complete a qualifying course from AWS Educate, AWS re/Start, or AWS Academy automatically receive an email invitation to join the ETC. So get started on your badge-eligible courses today and, once completed, be on the lookout for your email invitation to join the ETC.
