What is the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate qualification? 

Cloud Computing involves the online delivery of IT resources, through a ‘pay as you need’ service, which enables organisations the freedom of not having to purchase and maintain their own data centres or servers, but rather simply access these services from Amazon Web Services, or other Cloud providers.

Learn how to become a successful Cloud Computing professional, through our AWS Solutions Architect – Associate certification, where you’ll learn about building infrastructure on Amazon Web Services and be able to define solutions using architectural design principles.

With the demand for certified AWS professionals rising, now is the time to invest in your future! As a certified AWS professional, you’ll be in high demand by large organisations, with high earning potential and excellent career progression.

New to AWS or Cloud Computing? Consider taking our AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner. 

Amazon has created some excellent videos to explain what Cloud Computing is, and the value of being AWS Certified.  

The AWS Solutions Architect  – Associate certification is the most sought after qualification in Cloud Computing, which will not only provide you with the knowledge to embark on a career in Cloud Computing as an architect, but also act as a springboard onto other specialist AWS certifications, such as Big Data, Machine Learning, or Security.
