AWS Cloud Certification

The Amazon AWS cloud certification allows professionals to certify that they have the technical skills and knowledge associated with best practices for building secure and reliable cloud-based applications using Amazon Web Services (AWS) technology. Essentially, earning the certification offers proof of experience working with AWS. The program is built around three primary roles: Solutions Architect, SysOps Administrator, and Developer, and the certs are the AWS Certified Solutions Architect, the Certified Developer and the Certified SysOps Administrator. These role-based certifications are in turn offered at three proficiency levels: Associate, Professional and Master. This roadmap diagram explains it all.

The impact that the cloud has on enterprise IT today can’t be denied. For all its pervasiveness, however, the cloud is still comparatively new, which makes hiring the correct employees equipped with the pertinent cloud-related skillsets all the more important. The field is constantly changing, too, which makes identifying these abilities an even more challenging one for the harried CIO or IT manager.

To help you on this front, we have identified some of the more notable cloud-related certifications. While they run the gamut from the relatively entry-level to the fairly challenging (and prestigious), they are likely certifications that you should know about as you evaluate your staff’s skillsets and go about hiring.
