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.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

"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."

"Good 4-day training. All the AWS services were covered in a good pace. There was time for Q&A so everyone could share some questions or experiences. Overall great experience!"

"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."
