Description

"Strongly recommended. More effective than many courses ten times the price."

If you want to learn about AWS from they guy who wrote the book (AWS for Dummies, Dummies Press) about it, you've come to the right place! I'm Bernard Golden, and WIRED named me one of the ten most influential people in cloud computing. The Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate truly is all you need to pass the certification exam and become Amazon Web Services Certified. But it’s far more than that. It’s the entry portal to your mastery of AWS -- today’s most important computing platform. AWS is the fastest growing technology offering -- ever -- and this course covers it in depth. If you're ready to take your career to the next level, this is the course for you!

Here's what some previous students had to say about my course:

"This course is the best tool for someone who wants to get the certification. "

"This one of the best course not only on Udemy but on the internet"

"Had an awesome experience with the course and I already recommended to my friends."

"Very well presented. Much better than most Udemy courses."

"I loved learning with these videos. I am a trainer myself, I can say these videos are very well made."

"Surprised at how much good information was packed into this. If you've never spent any time in AWS, prepare to be amazed."

"Excellent course for AWS."

The Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate gives you everything you need to succeed with AWS:

  • It’s comprehensive: It covers all the AWS services, so that you learn the breadth of the AWS offering and understand how they all interrelate and support one another.

It also provides deep dives into the core AWS services so that you develop a full set of skills in EC2, S3, VPC, and IAM. And it’s constantly updated -- which is important, given that AWS released 1300+ new services or service improvements in 2017 alone!

  • It’s comprehensible: I’m sure you’ve shared my experience in trying to learn a new technology and being overwhelmed by jargon and complexity. In this course I’ve applied all the skills I learned in writing two best-selling cloud computing books in how to make technology comprehensible.

But wait, there’s more! I’ve also leveraged the power of the Udemy platform to show as well as tell. And it’s all presented in a way that makes it easy for you to understand AWS services.

  • It gets you ready for the Solutions Architect Associate certification exam. Naturally, the course gives you all the knowledge you need in a comprehensible format. That provides the foundation for your certification exam. But the course also contains exam tips in every section that discuss the specific knowledge you’ll need about each service to answer the certification questions. And there's even a practice exam at the end of the course that contains questions just like the ones you'll see in your actual AWS certification exam.

  • It launches your AWS career: Taking this course is the best way to prepare for the AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certification exam -- and transform your future.

In the course I discuss this certification and share survey data that shows it as the most desirable -- and best paid -- certificate in the industry. Average salaries for certificate holders are well over six figures US, and they’re in high demand all around the world. The Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate course gets you ready to pass the certification exam on your very first try. What more could you want?

If you:

  • Want to learn all about AWS and its amazing portfolio of services

  • Do a deep dive into the most important and widely-used AWS services

  • Build our a real-world application that uses those core services to show how AWS enables resilient and dynamically scalable applications

  • Learn everything you need to know to pass your AWS Solutions Architect Associate certification

  • Of course, it’s perfect for someone who wants to pass the Solutions Architect Associate exam on their very first try!
  • This course is not the best fit for you if you have already passed the Solutions Architect Associate exam or if you have no technical background with computers, application installation and configuration, or website implementation.
