Welcome! I’m here to help you prepare and PASS the newest AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Associate exam.

The AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Associate certification is one of the most challenging exams. It’s great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but how to administer it and troubleshoot issues, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I’ve passed it myself with a score of 980 out of 1000. Yes, you read that right, I only made one mistake! Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Associate certification with flying colors.
Important: It is highly advised that you first pass the Developer or Solution Architect certification first.
