The AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate certification is one of the most challenging exams. It’s great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but making sure you are making the best architectural decisions based on situations, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I’ve passed it myself with a score of 982 out of 1000. Yes, you read that right, I only made one mistake! Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate certification with flying colors.

This is going to be a long journey, but passing the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam will be worth it!

This AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate course is different from the other ones you’ll find on Udemy. Dare I say, better (but you’ll judge!)

We will spend over three hours discussing solution architecture on AWS in depth.

It covers in-depth all the new topics on the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C02 exam

It’s packed with practical knowledge on how to use AWS inside and out as a solutions architect

It teaches you how to prepare for the AWS exam AND how to prepare for the real world
