We have been working toward this for a while now.
Then after many hours of study, work, exams, accreditation, several emails, a couple of meetings and repeatedly pressing F5, the button said ‘REQUEST UPGRADE REVIEW.”
We pressed and now we have this badge:-
We have picked up a few more AWS certifications at Wolk over the last few months. We are working towards a bigger goal, but we thought we would share this achievement as we now have an “All 5” (original) engineer. We have also picked up the Security Specialty Certification and strengthened our core with further Solution Architect certificates.
Our training is from acloud.guru, however for the DevOps Professional additional training from linuxacademy.com was used, as their 2018 course has amazing highlighted detail.
Our first AWS professional certificate has been achieved within Wolk. The certification was the Solution Architect Professional.
The exam was tough, not necessarily because of the difficulty of the questions but because of the time limit. There seemed to be exactly the right amount of time to answer the questions and review what was flagged. Just under 3 hours of relentless scenario based questions.
Resources used to prepare:-
AWS whitepapers – especially the “Anti-Patterns”
Straight onto the Advanced Network Specialty, we have heard it is also a challenge.
