AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional Level

If you are planning to do the same I'd recommend the following things to prepare for the certification:

  • Visit an Architecting on AWS and an Advanced Architecting on AWS Training. My colleges and I are teaching these trainings in Germany. Visit to learn more. Or search for another AWS training partner near to you.
  • Read through the AWS whitepapers.
  • Gain hands-on experience in real world AWS projects for at least 6 months.
  • Have a good sleep before taking the multiple coice test for the certification. Concentrating for 3 hours is hard.
