Become an AWS Solutions Architect, Build IT infrastructure on AWS Cloud

AWS Solutions Architect – Associate


Architecting on AWS covers the fundamentals of building IT infrastructure on AWS. The course is designed to teach solutions architects how to optimize the use of the AWS Cloud by understanding AWS services and how these services fit into cloud-based solutions. Because architectural solutions may differ depending on industry, type of applications, and size of business, this course emphasizes AWS Cloud best practices and recommended design patterns to help students think through the process of architecting optimal IT solutions on AWS. It also presents case studies throughout the course that showcase how some AWS customers have designed their infrastructures and the strategies and services they implemented. Opportunities to build a variety of infrastructures via a guided, hands-on approach are also provided.

Course Objectives:

  • Make architectural decisions based on the AWS recommended architectural principles and best practices.
  • Leverage AWS services to make your infrastructure scalable, reliable, and highly available.
