AWS Certifications



  • Looking at getting my AWS certs but wondering which is the most sought after. Google didn't give me much to go on, so I figured I'd ask the community.

  • I am biased towards the Brainbench / Previsor one because... I wrote it 🙂



  • I am referring to the following:

    AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate
    AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional
    AWS Certified Developer - Associate
    AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate
    AWS Certified DevOps Engineer - Professional

    Which one of these would fit the bill better for my career?

    Solutions Architect is not what you have done in the past and not where you are looking at being currently. So those are more for a change in career direction more than anything.

    The Developer is not at all what you do, so that is out.

    DevOps, likewise, would be a major career change. Not a bad one, but it's a very different role and would be a long term transition.

    SysOps Admin would be the logical starting point as it leverages where you have been and where you have been thinking of going.

    For all of them, Associate is the starting point, you would do that before considering the Professional level.
