New AWS Certification Specialty Exams and Benefits

AWS Certified partners now have more ways to validate skills and showcase expertise. We are introducing two new AWS Certification Specialty Exams and our new AWS Certification Benefits Program.

AWS Certification – Specialty Exams

Our new AWS Certified Advanced Networking – Specialty and AWS Certified Big Data – Specialty exams are designed for people with at least one Associate level AWS Certification and deep hands-on experience in the relevant specialty. These credentials can help you stand out from the crowd, get recognized, and provide more evidence of your unique technical skills.

AWS Certification Benefits

Designed to help showcase your achievement and further advance your AWS expertise, tiered AWS Certification benefits include newly designed AWS Certified logos and certificates, digital badges, free practice exams, branded merchandise, transcript sharing, and more. Benefits are accessed based on the AWS Certifications you have achieved. The more exams you successfully complete the more benefits you will receive.
