The 9 AWS Certifications: Which is Right for You and Your Team?


If there’s one thing the Cloud Academy team knows well, it’s that Amazon Web Services certifications are a very hot item. Hardly a day goes by without users requesting some kind of help properly navigating through the complicated exam process.

The truth is that, while we really love getting to know members of the Cloud Academy community through these requests, we also feel bad that you sometimes have to wait a bit for a response. We also suspect that, for every one person who takes the time to send us a question, there are probably at least fifty more who are just as bothered but weren’t able to ask.

So in an effort to bring important and useful guidance closer to the people who need it, Cloud Academy has published the first two of a series of free PDF eBooks introducing AWS certifications.

The first book of the series, “A Guide to AWS Certification Exams“, takes a look at the whole family of AWS certifications, describing the prerequisites and benefits of each of AWS’s five certification programs. You’ll discover:

  • Preparation tips
  • Each exam’s unique purpose
  • Each exam’s unique question style
  • The professional benefits of AWS certification

The second eBook, “AWS Solutions Architect Certification” deals specifically with AWS’s most popular exam: the Solutions Architect associate level. The book focuses on:

  • Exam requirements
  • Who will benefit the most from this certification path
  • How to best leverage Cloud Academy resources to prepare
  • Tips for success

But the eBooks in this series will go beyond just certifications, and even beyond AWS. We’re currently planning more books covering things like the state of the Cloud Computing job market.
