Overview

On this accelerated AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification course, you'll learn the skills you need to build highly available, cost-effective and secure applications on the AWS platform.

In just 4 days you’ll learn details of AWS Services needed to fulfil a solutions architect role and study the following areas:

  • Architecting for the cloud best practices
  • Virtual Networking
  • AWS Storage
  • AWS Databases
  • Cloud Monitoring and Automation

Firebrand's official AWS Architecting on AWS course is the second rung on the Amazon Webservices certification ladder. This course includes the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate 2020 exam which is the recommended prerequisite qualification for the AWS Advanced Architecting on AWS course and the Solutions Architect - Professional exam.

At the end of the course, you’ll also sit the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exam and get certified.

  3. Pass Solutions Architect Associate first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.

"I had failed the AWS Solution Architect Associate exam multiple times before coming to Firebrand Training. The OIL course was great and the Instructor was very clear and helpful. I took the exam again straight after finishing the course and PASSED! I was a lot more confident in the exam because I now understood all of the concepts being presented in the questions."
Sam Phillips, Tecflair. (1/3/2021 (Monday) to 4/3/2021 (Thursday))

"The instructor knew his stuff, the course content was perfect and the pace of the course was just about right. I went from knowing nothing about AWS to passing the certification exam."
David Leigh, Self employed. (4/1/2021 (Monday) to 7/1/2021 (Thursday))

Anonymous (21/9/2020 (Monday) to 24/9/2020 (Thursday))

"Intensive deep knowledge training by a very positive and motivated trainer. The instructor really helped me get my head around AWS, and define solid basements for the certification. Outstanding flexibility & creativity facing the audiance as he needed to face strong network/security guys of the same company, with weak system/db background."
