    Hi all

    Just after some advice please. I want to pursue the AWS Certified Solutions Architect certifications but I'm not sure if I have to work for a company that's a partner to Amazon. Is this the case? I can't find much about it on the net and a colleague in work told me that I can't just study for this and sit the exams. Is anyone certified and can someone point me in the right direction please? I can get a free trial AWS account to play with while I study but I've held off starting this until I know more.

    Cheers
    Jim

    Well I'm guessing you can just study for it based on an email I got from a training provider, but dont take my word for gospel

    It looks like I can just study for it but my team mate was pretty sure that wasn't the case.

    As far as I know you just study for it, theres a lot free ebooks on amazon if you have a kindle.

    They also run a free AWS Summit every now and then.

    I would have a look at linuxacademy.com for some of their training material, I recently took out a 1 year Sub and haven't been disappointed at all, they have a load of Linux\AWS\OpenStack and DevOps training there.

    It's $25 a month that's well spent in my opinion.

    Their support (communities) is top notch, answer most questions very quickly as well.
