We’ve all heard that the AWS Certification is one of the highest paying certifications in IT. But the AWS Certification path can be a bit daunting, especially if you don’t know what you’re working with.

Amazon Web Services can help you build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability, and reliability. And despite only being in the marketplace for a few years, AWS Certifications have become a featured highlight in IT salary reports. As AWS is being widely adopted in the marketplace by organizations around the globe, many professionals are choosing to pursue these certifications whether they’re working directly or indirectly with the technologies, But how do you go about certified?

  • What does the AWS Certification path look like?
  • Are there prerequisites for each Certification?
  • Which AWS Certifications should I start with?
  • What are the exams like?
  • I have no experience in cloud, but can I still get a job in tech?

You don’t have to already be an IT guru to get started. Whether you’re in a professional IT role or not, have some AWS knowledge or are just breaking into it, here’s our Head of AWS Content, Tom Haslett, with some advice for advancing your career:

Hello! In the video he says the AWS Professional certifications must have the AWS Associate certifications as a prerequisite, but I think that’s no longer true. Could you confirm please?

Hi Sebastian! There is no longer a requirement to have Associate certifications before pursuing Professional certifications. However, because AWS Professional is a challenging exam, we do recommend taking all learning paths to prepare you for it. You can get started with our AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate.
