About the AWS Advanced Networking Specialty

Find answers to the most frequently asked questions related to the AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty

There are no prerequisites to sit any AWS exam. However, the AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty exam is a difficult exam that requires a solid foundation of knowledge of AWS services. You also need to have strong knowledge of networking protocols, IP addressing, and hybrid networking concepts.

For those who do not have significant experience working with AWS technologies, it is recommended that you first pass at least one associate-level certification, such as the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate, before attempting the AWS Advanced Networking Specialty exam.

Even better would be to pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional exam before attempting the AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty exam. The Advanced Networking Specialty certification exam will be much easier if you follow this path.

How should you prepare for the AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty exam? This is not an easy task and requires careful planning to ensure you’re fully prepared before you attempt this challenging AWS certification exam.

The best way is to enroll in our training for the AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty Certification. You’ll gain access to our on-demand video training and practice tests (in both exam simulation and training mode). Cheat sheets are also available which summarize the key facts you need to remember for the exam.

Specialty certifications vary in difficulty with the more difficult exams being on par with the professional level AWS certifications. The AWS Certified Advanced Networking Specialty exam is similar in difficulty to the AWS professional level exams, though this really depends on your networking experience.

Questions in the AWS advanced networking exam can be quite lengthy and complex. You MUST have a strong understanding of a broad range of AWS services and networking concepts before taking this course or sitting the exam. You then need to understand how to implement complex hybrid networking and AWS cloud networking architectures.

If you follow our recommendations for passing at least one associate level exam and preferably a professional exam, you should then allocate around a month for the additional study to successfully prepare for the AWS Advanced Networking Specialty exam.

The passing score is 750 points out of 1000 points (75%). There are 65 questions in the exam and the entire time allocation is 170 minutes.

The exam cost is $300 USD. Please remember that if you’ve passed another AWS certification exam previously (which you should have!) then you will have a 50% discount coupon available in your account over at aws.training.

The learning objectives for the ANS-C01 exam are as follows:

  • Design and develop hybrid and cloud-based networking solutions by using AWS
  • Implement core AWS networking services according to AWS best practices
  • Operate and maintain hybrid and cloud-based network architecture for all AWS services
