Dr Khaled Fahad Alalawi, Assistant Undersecretary of Industrial Development, Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Tourism and from H.E.

Many of the attending SMEs registered for the program and will be attending the first session of cloud awareness with ThinkSmart, to start their cloud journey.
The initiative will provide eligible 2,000 SMEs with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud skills training to help them become more innovative and grow at a faster rate. This initiative is aligned with the Kingdom of Bahrain’s 2030 Vision and its Cloud First Policy and aims to skill thousands of Bahraini SMEs in the next three years and help them stay ahead in the digital economy.

Participants SMEs will also have access to a very special pre and post-sales cloud consultancy from ThinkSmart. The program’s curriculum will cover the basics of the AWS Cloud and move to more advanced courses that will prepare participants for achieving world-recognized AWS Certifications. For Bahraini citizens, costs for certification exams will be covered by Tamkeen’s Individual Development Program.
