Who Should Take AWS Certified Sysops Administrator Training?

This SysOps Admin training is considered admin-level AWS training, which means it was designed for cloud administrators with at least one year of AWS experience. This AWS Certified Sysops Administrator course is designed for cloud administrators with three to five years of experience with cloud infrastructure.

New and aspiring cloud administrators. This SysOps course was designed specifically with new AWS administrators in mind. It starts from the very beginning with starting your Free Tier account, then progresses to creating VPCs, AWS connectivity, and Elastic Load Balancer. New and aspiring cloud administrators can use the Amazon training to gain exposure to the AWS environment, architecture, and best practices in deploying and managing AWS systems.

Experienced cloud administrators. While there are no longer prerequisites for AWS certifications, even experienced AWS administrators should start with SysOps Admin training. Before tackling the DevOps engineer certification, validate your knowledge of building AWS environments, creating Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), backups and disaster recovery, identity and access management, and security. This SysOps course can also help IT professionals and developers with experience on other cloud platforms quickly onboard to the AWS cloud.
