When combined with the SysOps Administrator certification, this associate-level certification can also lead you to the Development Operations (DevOps) Engineer certification.
As with other associate-level AWS certifications, you can expect to take about one year to familiarize yourself with the technology and prepare for the exam. To get started, you need to not only familiarize yourself with AWS technologies, but you should also be comfortable writing code.
For those new to coding, we recommend having a familiarity with Java for those who are new to coding; however, any programming language will suffice. Once you are satisfied with your skill level, your next step is to take a training course that will help you prepare for the exam.
