Passed the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner

I just took the exam about an hour ago.

I'm not sure exactly what it is that I want to do in cloud computing yet, but I have noticed AWS mentioned in some info sec job postings.

So far, I have this cert, the CompTIA Security+, CCNA Security and CCNA Routing & Switching certs.

I will be studying for the Red Hat and Splunk certs.

Linux Academy's AWS CCP course is the first online course that I've finished from beginning to end. So, thank you, Linux Acad, for your resources. I will be using Linux Acad for the Red Hat exam as well.

    Congrats, Iyana! That's awesome! A lot of the info sec jobs are geared more towards cloud knowledge and more and more leaning that way, so definitely a good thing that you're getting those certifications out of the way! Best of luck on your RedHat adventure!!

    Very well done!


    As for where to go, I was going to suggest you get a well-rounded base of different things to pull from (which is useful for getting a taste of different things, and also helps you be more successful in all of those things). But with those certs you have you're already well underway with that!

    Also, security will always be in demand, but it's also super hard and competition for quality will always be tough. I'd say lean into it if you feel confident; but then even I keep wondering if I should have gone this way or that way... I guess the best advice, is focus on what you enjoy most.

    Congratulations Iyana!

    I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

    Thanks,

    Anthony
