Frequently asked questions
Who is this course suitable for?
Do I need a college degree in IT to take this course ?
Do I need previous AWS experience to take this course ?
Will the AWS Solution Architect certification help my career ?
Do I need my own AWS account ?
During each class you will use our AWS accounts to deploy AWS cloud infrastructure and the cost of resources used during the class is included in the course fee. We recommend that you set up your own AWS account (it’s easy to do) to practice outside of class. You should not need to spend more than a few Euro per month to practice . There is also a free-tier available for new AWS accounts which gives you access to certain AWS services for free.
How important is data security in your course ?
Properly-used, the AWS cloud is a very secure platform. We teach you how to use the security features of AWS and the “shared-responsibilty” security model on which the AWS platform is based.
Where do I take the exam ?
The exam can be taken externally at an authorised exam centre. Currently the exam costs USD $150. Please see the AWS website for more details.
