What is an AWS Certification?
An AWS Certification is a credential issued by AWS to individuals who show they have specific knowledge, skills, and abilities. We work with AWS experts to set the bar for required experience in common cloud job roles and expertise in specific technical areas. You can show you meet that bar by taking—and passing—one of our AWS Certification exams. When you do, AWS awards you an AWS Certification.
