Getting Back on Track


My journey with AWS certification began in 2023 when I successfully passed my Cloud Foundation Certification. This was a significant milestone in my career as a cloud professional, and it marked the beginning of an exciting journey. However, my aspiration didn’t stop there. I had set my sights on the Associate Architect Certification, a more advanced credential that would enable me to design and advise on cloud-driven solutions. Unfortunately, due to other work and life priorities, I wasn’t able to pursue it immediately.

As the year 2023 came to a close, I found myself reflecting on my professional goals and aspirations. My Cloud Foundation Certification had been a significant achievement, but I knew there was more I wanted to accomplish. I had my eyes set on the Associate Architect Certification, a credential that would take my skillset to the next level. However, between my work commitments and personal life, I found it challenging to find the time and energy to prepare for the exam.

As 2024 dawned, I found myself at a crossroads. I could continue to let my other responsibilities take precedence, or I could make a concerted effort to achieve my goal. After much consideration, I decided to prioritize my AWS certification journey. I knew that achieving the Associate Architect Certification would not only enhance my professional credentials but also equip me with the skills and knowledge to design and advise on effective cloud-driven solutions.

Now the prepartion and study has started, the goal is to do the exam in March 2024. Fingers crossed.

Of course, I will update this blog with the results. Stay tuned!
