The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner offers a foundational understanding of AWS Cloud concepts, services, and terminology. This is a good starting point for individuals in non-technical roles with no prior IT or cloud experience or for those with on-premises IT experience looking for basic AWS Cloud fluency. This certification can give candidates the confidence to tackle role-based AWS Certifications.
The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner (CLF-C01) exam is intended for individuals who can effectively demonstrate an overall knowledge of the AWS Cloud independent of a specific job role.
This certification is intended for candidates who may be from a non-IT background and exploring a career in the AWS Cloud or in a sales/marketing/business analyst role looking to communicate more effectively with stakeholders and customers about the AWS Cloud. Additionally, candidates who are in an on-premises IT or cloud role, but new to AWS Cloud, and need a primer before diving into role-based AWS Certification(s).
