AWS Certifications validate technical knowledge with an industry-recognized credential. Today, the AWS Certification team released the AWS Certified Big Data – Specialty exam. This new exam validates technical skills and experience in designing and implementing AWS services to derive value from data. The exam requires a current Associate AWS Certification and is intended for individuals who perform complex big data analyses.

Individuals who are interested in sitting for this exam should know how to do the following:

  • Implement core AWS big data services according to basic architectural best practices
  • Design and maintain big data
  • Leverage tools to automate data analysis

To prepare for the exam, we recommend the Big Data on AWS course, plus AWS whitepapers and documentation that are focused on big data.

This credential can help you stand out from the crowd, get recognized, and provide more evidence of your unique technical skills.

The AWS Certification team also released an AWS Certified Advanced Networking – Specialty exam and new AWS Certification Benefits. You can read more about these new releases on the AWS Blog.
