AWS Blog

AWS Announces NEW Re-Certification Policy!

As of March 3, 2019, AWS will no longer run re-certification exams. Instead, you can re-certify every THREE (3) years (instead of every two) by taking the AWS full-length exam. AWS has also announced that all AWS Certified individuals will be offered a 50% exam discount voucher which will be available in their AWS Certification Account by 28 February, 2019.

So what does this mean if you're already an AWS Certified individual...?

Well,  if you currently hold an Associate Level Certification, then either

1. Take the current Associate exam:

You can take the Associate-level exam for the certification you already have. For example, if you are an AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate, you can retake the current AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam to recertify. You can use your 50% discount voucher from the Benefits section of your AWS Certification account to recertify or apply it to any future certification exam you wish to pursue.

Or

2. You could earn a Professional-level certification

You can also satisfy the re-certification requirement by passing either the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional exam for the Architect path or AWS Certified DevOps Engineer - Professional exam for the Developer or Operations path. For example, if you pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional exam, this will satisfy your AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate re-certification requirement.

However,  if you already have a Professional Level Certification, then:

You can take the current Professional level exam for the certification you already have. For example, if you are an AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional, you can retake the current AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional exam to recertify. You can use your 50% voucher from the Benefits section of your AWS Certification account to re-certify or apply it to any future certification exam you wish to pursue.

And what about my AWS Speciality certification?

If you hold an AWS Specialty Certification (ie: Advanced Networking, or Big Data, or Security), you can take the current Specialty exam for the certification you already have. For example, if you are an AWS Certified Security – Specialist, you can retake the current AWS Certified Security – Specialty exam to recertify. You can use your 50% discount voucher from the Benefits section of your AWS Certification account to re-certify or apply it to any future certification exam you wish to pursue.

Remember - you only have to renew every THREE years now!
