About the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification

Find answers to the most frequently asked questions related to the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification Exam

The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification is one of the most popular certifications in cloud computing today. Cloud adoption is growing at an ever increasing rate and a shortage of skilled staff is driving up the value of cloud certifications. It’s important for personnel in many areas of the business to understand the cloud value proposition and how it can drive business value.

We wrote an extensive article on the general question of whether AWS certifications are worth it here but the short answer is absolutely, yes! And this 100% applies to the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification. 

The Cloud Practitioner certification is an excellent foundational level course that will teach you the value proposition of the AWS Cloud, the billing and pricing models, support options, security, and a high-level understanding of the main services.

This knowledge is essential for anyone who works in a role where they are directly or indirectly involved with cloud computing. Considering you can earn this certification in as little as 21 days with just an hour or so of study per day, it’s a relatively small investment to gain valuable skills.

Our AWS Cloud Practitioner Video Course includes a detailed study plan. Follow this study plan to easily achieve the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification with around 21 days of study. We recommend you allocate around 1 hour per day for study time with a little extra on weekends.

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam is an entry-level exam and as such it is the easiest AWS exam. The cloud practitioner exam questions are straightforward and only include very simple scenarios. The coverage of AWS topics is quite broad but the depth of knowledge is shallow. 

With our ultimate exam training package that includes a video course, practice exams and training notes (PDF) you have everything you need to ace your cloud practitioner exam!

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam is 65 questions in length. Unlike the associate and professional level certifications, Cloud Practitioner questions are not scenario based. All questions conform to the AWS format (1 answer from 4 options, or 2 answers from 5 options). 

It’s really helpful to familiarise yourself with the type, format and style of the AWS exam. That’s why we offer practice exams that closely match the exam pattern and difficulty and are the most similar to the real AWS exam experience available. 

You have 90 minutes to complete your exam. To succesfully pass your exam, you need to get a minimum of 700 points out of 1000 points (70%). Though the amount of time per question is relatively short, the questions are mostly straightforward and most students can easily complete the exam within the time allocation.

Note that if English is not your first language you can request an accommodation when booking your exam that will qualify you for an additional 30 minutes exam extension.

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam cost is $100 US.

Once you successfully pass your exam, you will be issued a 50% discount voucher that you can use towards your next AWS Exam.
