AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Technology List

Hello everyone! Yes – all my certs are needing to be refreshed at once it would appear.

Today I am renewing the entry-level Amazon Web Services (AWS) certification entitled The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification.

Taking a look at the impressive exam objectives, I wanted to provide a checklist of the technologies we should definitely understand and be ready to answer multiple choice questions about.

I tried to break these up into categories as best I could. I hope this is a help to you in your studies.

Since I am taking this exam later today – I will be sure to post a full review of the exam after I pass (ohhhhh – such confidence!)
