NOTE: As the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve rapidly around the world, AWS has announced that it's extending the retirement date of the current AWS Certified Solutions Architect Exam SAA-C01 until July 1, 2020. PSI and Pearson VUE have both temporarily closed many of their testing centers worldwide in response to global government regulations to battle the spread of COVID-19. As an alternative to taking your exam at a testing center, online proctoring is available, which allows you to take your certification exam in the comfort of your own home or office. Instead of taking the exam at a PSI or Pearson VUE testing center near you, they will be offering only online proctored exams for the foreseeable future. This means you will have more time to prepare for the current exam rather than study for the new Exam SAA-C02 that released on March 23, 2020. To help you prepare for the current Exam SAA-C01, our Study Guide, Practice Tests and Certification Kit are available for purchase.
Study, practice, review!
