Absolutely. The AWS Navigate is intended to provide step by step guidance to APN Partners on how to specialize on AWS with the ultimate goal of attaining a distinction in the AWS Competency Program, AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program, or AWS Service Delivery Program.

Not at this time. However, each AWS Navigate offers tools that are specific to the specialization area and will provide you with step by step guidance on how to achieve the AWS Competency, AWS MSP, or AWS Service Delivery designation. We highly recommend that you participate in the AWS Navigate Program as it offers a framework so that you don't have to figure out how to achieve the designation on your own.

At launch, End User Computing, Contact Center, Microsoft Workloads, and Financial Services will be available. We expect to roll out more throughout the remainder of the year.

Step 1: Register for an APN Partner Central Account. If you are already an APN Partner, simply login to your APN Partner Central account.

Step 2: Select a learning path that best meets your organization's business objective. You will receive communication from AWS with next steps to start the AWS Navigate Program.

AWS Navigate training offerings are available in APN Partner Central. Once you select an AWS Navigate path, it will take you to the first phase of the AWS Navigate Program which is the specialization training.

This is a self-service model. As part of your organization’s AWS Navigate journey, you will receive prescriptive guidance on what content to consume, how to prepare, and when to take action. We’ve automated the journey so you do not need to chase down the next steps. For example, you will receive an automated transcript of the courses, resources, and call to action that your organization must complete. We want to be transparent and will provide APN Partners with goals that will help drive them towards in each phase. Once complete, you will receive a notification via email outlining next steps and how much of the learning path you have completed and what is outstanding.
