Cloud computing is the most talked about and appealing area of IT at the moment. It is an essential fixture for both service providers and users that see in it the present and future of networking and data process management. Some of the largest companies including Google, Microsoft and Amazon offer products that relate to this technology. The latter through its AWS certification offers a high standard of authorization that most professional developers strive to obtain.

If you are looking to get a high-end job in cloud computing, you can go around obtaining the Amazon Web Services Certification. Here are a few interesting facts I bet you never knew about this certification of proficiency:


Financial remuneration

Being an AWS solution architect means that you have one of the best paying jobs in North America. This certification grants the highest possible income out of all IT certifications in both the US and Canada. It is estimated that a professional who obtains it has an average annual salary of no less than $113,200, which is 30% more than a regular certification would bring you in the same area of expertise.

The AWS Certification Journey

Before you start looking for the prerequisites for obtaining the AWS certification, you should know that there are 9 such certifications you can take. The first and most accessible one is the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner, which you can acquire after attending the proper AWS online training program.

You will need to be a Cloud Practitioner before you can take any Associate-level or Specialty certification exam. It takes a lot of dedication, commitment, and AWS training to go through all the required steps and eventually reach the highest level, which is the AWS solution architect.


The preparation process for the exam is no picnic

If you want to become an AWS certified administrator, engineer or architect there is no way around hard work and intense preparation. You are aiming to enter the elite of cloud computing experts, and without an AWS course, it will be almost impossible to achieve your goals.

Your best choice is to enroll in AWS training online programs that provide you with resources, solutions and sample questions for your exam. You will also receive whitepaper recommendations and blueprints that will be essential for your success, so make sure that you consider this support system to complement your preparation.

Exam Day Planning is Essential

Many people who apply for the AWS certification fail because they do not pay attention to the smallest details in the process. This lack of focus on exam day can cost you the certificate, so make sure that you plan everything in advance.

Choose the one that matches the daily peak of your concentration and mental alertness. We all have it, and you will identify it in the preparation process according to your performance.

You have two minutes per question with 170 minutes for 80 problematic queries. It is crucial that you do not rush in and make mistakes, but also that you do not lack behind. You will need to work on your pace during the AWS training period so that you will be in top form when you take the exam.

In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Gothic dresses displayed in a store

The emergence of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England brought with it many apprehensions and fears that translated into a new genre in literature: the gothic. Today, the idea of the gothic does not have to much with literature as much as it is associated with fashion.
