AWS: Updates on Certifications
Many Pearson Vue and Prometric test centres have had to close due to the rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These situations have been extremely frustrating due to the coronavirus. This announcement is sure to please those who have been thinking about taking AWS certifications. Let’s start with the basics. There are many AWS certifications, from foundational-level up to specialty level. BasicIt offers four IT certifications depending on your level of skill. They are:
Foundation Level Certification
Every journey begins somewhere. It all starts with the Foundation level certificate for AWS. We will merge our analysis of each level to determine the foundational level certification.
Associate Level Certification
We have associate level certification after foundation level certification. Associate level certifications are required if you want to work in AWS in a hands-on capacity. While the AWS Foundation level certificate provides a solid foundation, the AWS Associate-level certifications are the most practical in terms of implementation.
Professional Level Certification
Certifications can make a big difference but not all certifications are created equal. We have different certification levels. The Professional level certification is the last. These exams are not easy. These exams are the pinnacle of AWS certification. They are both comprehensive and focused.
Certification at the Specialty Level
AWS Specialty certifications go deep in narrow areas, especially in networking, big data security, and machine-learning. AWS Speciality certification should not be treated as a professional-level certification.

This is a great way to take Google Cloud certification exams while you are social distancing and self-quarantining.
