Course Description

SecureNinja's 3-day AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate training will prepare students to learn the major components of Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS certifications are very much in demand across the IT industry and this is a valuable intermediate-level course that is geared towards individuals who perform a solutions architect role designing available, cost-efficient, fault-tolerant, and scalable distributed systems on AWS, though no prior experience is needed before taking this course. You’ll learn about AWS Cloud concepts, core AWS services, as well as a closer look at individual services such as EC2, S3, VPC, Route 53, RDS, SQS and more.

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate examination, itself, is intended for individuals who have the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively demonstrate an overall understanding of the AWS Cloud, independent of specific technical roles addressed by other AWS Certifications.
