Exam Readiness Intensive Workshop Training

This five-day, instructor-led course helps busy architects get away from the day-to-day to get focused and ready for their AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam. Attendees learn the fundamentals of building IT infrastructure on AWS, so they can build scalable and resilient solutions in the cloud, by spending the first 3 days on the Architecting on AWS course. They’ll start getting in the exam readiness mindset with bonus end of module quizzes. Next, they’ll learn strategies to answer exam questions and avoid common mistakes with the Exam Readiness: AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate half-day course. The course broadens attendees’ knowledge of AWS services with deep dives into Amazon Redshift, Amazon Kinesis, and AWS Key Management Service, and then concludes with two quizzes and an instructor guided review of the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate practice exam.
