Amazon said today that it plans to invest $1.2 billion by 2025 to expand the education and skills training benefits it offers to its U.S. employees.

Through its Career Choice program, the company will fund full college tuition, high school diplomas, GEDs, and English as a Second Language (ESL) proficiency certifications for its front-line employees, including those who have been at the company only three months, Amazon said in a news release.

Amazon also is adding three new education programs to provide employees with the opportunity to learn skills within data center maintenance and technology, IT, and user experience and research design.
