AWS Path Certification Partner Enablement

AWS training and certification enables partners to support customers’ and their own technical needs. Tech Data’s AWS partners have access to discounted digital and instructor-led training, so you can choose to learn best practices either online at your own pace, or as part of an instructor-led class.

Step 1 – Choose Which Certifications You Need

If you are a recently registered AWS Consulting Partner and looking to move to the Select Tier, you will need to have a minimum of two individuals, each with the Foundational level certification (Certified Cloud Practitioner) and two individuals with one of the Associate, Professional, or Speciality certifications.

Step 2 – Choose your preferred method of training

• Instructor-led: Ask questions, work through solutions in person, and get feedback from AWS-accredited instructors with deep technical knowledge. Each certification has an instructor-led course aligned covering the content required for certification. Click on the certification on the table above to see the aligned training.
• Digital self-paced: Go from learning to doing with hundreds of self-paced digital training courses built by the experts at AWS. The Cloud Learning Pass from Tech Data provides 365 day unlimited access to self-paced versions of the instructor-led classes, plus hands on labs and practice exams. Click here for more details.

Note – a certification voucher is included when attending instructor-led training, but needs to be purchased separately when attending digital self-paced training

Step 3 – Register for training

Tech Data’s AWS partners receive substantial discounts of up to 75%. Enter promo code “AWSPARTNER” to activate the discount when registering for your preferred method of training.

Step 4 – Prep for certification

AWS host a series of Exam Readiness Webinars, explaining how the exam is structured, including question formats, content domains, and the breakdown of questions across those domains. Also, how to interpret the concepts being tested by a question so that you can better eliminate incorrect responses. During the webinar, you will have the chance to apply knowledge and test concepts through a series of practice exam questions. Click here for more details and to register. The webinars are free of charge for AWS partners to attend.

Step 5 – Register for certification

Online proctoring is now available for all AWS Certification exams when you schedule with Pearson VUE or PSI. A reliable internet connection, a webcam, and a private place are all you need to validate your cloud skills. From your AWS Certification Account, you can schedule your exam with either Pearson VUE or PSI.
