Governor Ned Lamont has announced a collaboration between the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU), the Office of Workforce Strategy, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide technical skills training and education to more than 2,000 Connecticut residents by 2024. Through this initiative, all Connecticut community colleges will be able to offer courses and certificates that align with skills needed to pursue in-demand careers in technical fields. The colleges will also work with interested high schools to provide access to cloud computing curricula.
