Why get certified, anyway?

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.
