Enhance your skills - become a professional level Solutions Architect and pass the AWS SA Pro Exam

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect is one of the most valuable and in-demand cloud certifications available. The associate level certification is valued because it demonstrates capability in a wide range of AWS products and services.

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional certification moves beyond this, testing your in-depth knowledge of a wider range of AWS products and services. It evidences your ability to design complex cloud-native and hybrid solutions, audit and mitigate performance and reliability problems with sub-optimal implementations, and identify the most ideal product or selection of products to use in a given situation.

The exam requires you to be able to do all of this, under pressure, within complex scenario based questions.

Far fewer people are able to obtain this super-valuable certification, but by enrolling in this course I'm going to teach you how to easily overcome the challenging exam and even more importantly help you gain the skills required to become a senior AWS solutions architect. Don't be scared, if you are willing to put in the effort I'll be here to help you every step of the way!!!!
