Amazon Web Services AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate Level

Cloud Computing Architecture is an AWS Academy curriculum designed to help students develop technical expertise in cloud computing and prepare them for the AWS Solutions Architect – Associate certification exam.

We designed this cloud architect certification training for anyone seeking to learn the major components of Amazon Web Services (AWS). By the end of the course, you’ll be prepared to pass the associate-level AWS Certified Solutions Architect certification exam. The AWS certification is a must-have for any IT professional, with average salaries above £50,000.

This course helps you to pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect (CSA) – Associate Exam. Even if you have never logged in to the AWS platform before, by the end of our AWS training you will be able to take the CSA exam. No programming knowledge needed and no prior AWS experience required. With this AWS certification under your belt (and optionally after completing our AWS Certified Developer 2017 – also available on Udemy), you will be in high demand by many employers and you can command a superior salary.

In this course we will start with a broad overview of the AWS platform and then deep dive into the individual elements of the AWS platform. You will explore Route53, EC2, S3, Cloud Front, Autoscaling, Load Balancing, RDS, RedShift, DynamoDB, EMR, VPC etc.
