AWS Learning Paths: Your Roadmap to Cloud Mastery

AWS Learning paths provide direction and structure, helping you make sense of your training options and achieve the learning outcomes important to you.

These AWS Learning Paths are grouped into two categories: role and solution.

Both types of Learning Path have the potential to lead to AWS Certification.

Role-Based Paths

Role Based Learning Paths will empower you with the knowledge and skills required to perform your job function in the AWS Cloud. Role Based Learning Paths include Cloud Practitioner, Architect, SysOps, DevOps and Operations.

Solutions Paths

Solutions Based Learning Paths will give you the skills to use and deploy specialised AWS services. Solutions Based learning Paths include Security, Machine Learning, Big Data and Databases.

Role-Based Paths

This learning path is intended for individuals who are looking to build and validate overall understanding of the AWS Cloud. This path is useful for individuals in technical, managerial, sales, purchasing, or financial roles who work with the AWS Cloud.
