Its time to study for AWS Certification #3. I took a little time off, but no more! This time I am going for the SysOps Administrator – Associate certificate. I guess its a little harder than the other 2 certifications I passed, but still within range!
Whats hard about some of these certifications is you don’t actually work with all covered material day-to-day. Spinning up EC2 instances and creating security groups it pretty standard, but when it comes to things like networking, those tasks are not typically done by me.
So my plan is going to be the following to pass the exam:
- Listen to a training course from acloud.guru on the way to and from work. (Long commute both ways)
- Practice heavily in AWS on all the relevant topics.
- Use the practice exam voucher I received from passing previous certifications to pay for an official AWS SysOps practice exam.
- Rely on personal experience.
