AWS certifications are the cream of the cloud crop, known for their thoroughness, rigour and consistency. AWS-certified professionals are in huge demand and short supply, so certifying in AWS makes you incredibly valuable for employers.
AWS certifications help you grow an exciting, rewarding and very lucrative career in one of the fastest growing and most cutting-edge areas of IT.
Professional Level Courses
The two professional level courses align to AWS Professional certification in either Architecting or DevOps Engineering. These Professional certifications mark you as an expert on AWS and are highly-valued by employers. You likely have a clear preference and affinity for one path, but, as with the Associate certifications, there’s nothing to stop you securing both.
Your course investment includes exam enrolment.
To be eligible for the Professional level AWS courses you must hold Associate status in your discipline.
