Why get certified, anyways?

Getting certified shows that you have some of the most in-demand and profitable skills in the industry, though there are countless certifications to choose from. Cloud providers — such as AWS and Azure — offer foundational certifications, which are designed to validate a candidate’s overall understanding. Foundational cloud certifications for beginners include AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification and Microsoft Azure Fundamentals. To help you prepare for the exams, Cloud Academy offers vendor-neutral Learning Paths that deliver the theory, technical knowledge, and hands-on practice to get certified to operate across the cloud ecosystem.
