About the AWS Machine Learning Specialty

Find answers to the most frequently asked questions related to the AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty

There are no prerequisites to sit any AWS exam. However, the AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty exam is a difficult exam that requires a solid foundation of knowledge of AWS services. You should also be familiar with basic machine learning 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 Machine Learning Specialty exam.

How should you prepare for the AWS Certified Machine Learning 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 courses for the AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty Certification. You’ll gain access to our on-demand video training and practice tests (in both exam simulation and training mode). A cheat sheet is also included which summarizes 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 Machine Learning Specialty exam concentrates heavily on machine learning concepts, not just AWS concepts. Therefore, you need a solid understanding of advanced machine learning techniques before sitting this exam.

Assuming you have at least an associate level of AWS knowledge and some basic machine learning expertise, you should allocate between 4 and 8 weeks for study time. This really depends on your starting level of knowledge and how much time you can dedicate to learning.

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
