  • Step 1: Select your desired track
  • Clicking the “Get Started” link of your desired business outcome category will lead you to a selection of available APN Navigate tracks (APN Partner Central login required). Once you choose the specific track you’d like to participate in, your track will contain two assets to guide your journey:

    1. APN Navigate track: This is the digital experience that provides all of the step-by-step guidance needed to achieve your chosen business goal (e.g., achieving an AWS tier or obtaining an AWS designation). Your organization can return to this training time and time again to receive prescriptive instruction to meet your targeted business outcome.
    2. APN Navigate track playbook: Each APN Navigate track includes an accompanying playbook, which provides additional guidance that your organization can use to scale your workforce’s trainings, expand your team’s specialization in your chosen goal area, or explore any available designations for the unique track you’ve chosen to explore.
  • Step 2: Utilize APN Navigate guidance
  • Your APN Navigate track and accompanying playbook are the roadmap to achieving your business goals on AWS, and this enablement is available to your entire organization from day 1 with the APN.

    How to use your APN Navigate guidance:
    1. Within each track, review the guidance on each milestone to your targeted business outcome.
    2. As applicable, leverage the provided templates, best practices, and step-by-step instructions needed to execute and log completion of each activity with the APN.
    3. Complete as many activities as needed to support your targeted business goals. As desired, work with your APN Contact to determine which exercises are best-suited to your organization’s needs.
  • Step 3: Achieve your business outcome
  • When you’ve completed all of your desired activities to support your organization’s targeted business outcome, your organization can use the guidance enclosed in your APN Navigate track to complete any final steps toward application or validation, if applicable.

    From there, your organization can continue to define new AWS business goals and accelerate that journey through APN Navigate.
