What’s this new SAA-C02 exam all about?
The popular AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam SAA-C02 is intended for IT Professionals who perform a solutions architect or DevOps role and have substantial years of hands-on experience designing available, cost-efficient, fault-tolerant, and scalable distributed systems on Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.
This year, a new version of the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam ( SAA-C02 ) will be available to take on and after March 23, 2020. Take note that the current AWS Certified Solutions Architect — Associate exam (SAA-C01) will be available through March 22, 2020 only. After this period, you can only take the SAA-C02 exam.
