Why get certified as an AWS Architect?
If you’re looking to advance your career in IT, there are few better ways than an AWS certification. Among AWS certifications, Architect Associate is by far the most in demand. In fact, in Global Knowledge’s IT Skills and Salary Report, AWS Architect Associate is routinely one of the top-paying certifications (including non-AWS certifications), with average salary north of $120,000—not too shabby for someone looking to move onward and upward.
Unlike other certifications that focus primarily on one technology (i.e. Hadoop, MySQL, etc.), AWS certifications may cover a couple dozen AWS services. If you’re taking an AWS certification exam, you’re expected to know a bit about a lot. The “jack of all trades” with knowledge about storage, networking and processing are set up for success.
