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.
