The shift of enterprise technology infrastructure away from on-premises servers to cloud-based setups is only going to accelerate. That partly explains why there’s an enormous gap between what the tech industry needs in terms of AWS-certified professionals and the actual number of certified persons available. Ergo, by signing up for GreyCampus’ AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate course, you gain a substantial advantage over persons competing for the same IT jobs as you

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we’re typically asked, along with our responses:

Cloud-based services have become so all-encompassing that virtually every one seeking to build a long-term career in IT ought to be AWS-certified.

Let’s just say there are nowhere near enough AWS-qualified persons to fill the available opportunities in the market. More importantly, AWS-adoption will only continue to grow which means these vacancies are unlikely to reduce any time soon. Of course, no course can provide a 100% guarantee of getting a job upon completion but you’d have to try real hard to not be employed if you possess an AWS-certification.

Most people who will get AWS-certified will be doing so to bolster their existing IT skills. Therefore, the range of potential job roles post-certification is quite broad. System administrator, infrastructure/network administrator, cloud solution architect, cloud engineer, DevOps engineer, programmer, software development manager, IT security manager, solutions delivery manager and business analyst are some of positions where AWS-certification can prove invaluable.
