In this AWS Solutions Architect training, Bart Castle prepares cloud administrators to take the SAA-C01 or SAA-C02 exams, which are the two versions of the one exam required to earn the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate certification.
If you already have experience using compute, networking, storage, and database AWS services and want to take on more responsibility planning distributed systems, this Solutions Architect training and certification can move you in that direction. One of the most important skills validated by this certification is the ability to design and implement a distributed architectural solution based on customer needs. That means you no longer enact someone else’s plan — you can start planning distributed systems yourself.
For anyone who manages AWS training for a company or team, this Solutions Architect training can be used for AWS exam prep, on-boarding new cloud professionals, or as part of an AWS migration training plan.
