Today I passed the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam!

I’ve been using a few AWS services for the last several years and the  AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification was a good start to  confirming the AWS knowledge and skills I’ve acquired so far.  Looking  to study for the Solutions Architect Associate next.

Knowledge Domains:

  • Define what the AWS Cloud is and the basic global infrastructure
  • Describe basic AWS Cloud architectural principles
  • Describe the AWS Cloud value proposition
  • Describe key services on the AWS platform and their common use cases (for example, compute and analytics)
  • Describe basic security and compliance aspects of the AWS platform and the shared security model
  • Define the billing, account management, and pricing models
  • Identify sources of documentation or technical assistance (for example, whitepapers or support tickets)
  • Describe basic/core characteristics of deploying and operating in the AWS Cloud
