Practice Exams

AWS exams are tough. Even the most knowledgable student can have difficulty. The best way to prepare for an exam after you have completed the course is to get exposure to exam type questions.

The BackSpace Academy practice exams are timed and in a format similar to the real exam with the ability to mark questions for review. At the end of the exam your mark will be presented along with an explanation of where you went wrong.

Certificate of Completion

After completing the video course you will earn a certificate of completion from BackSpace Academy.  This is great if you don’t want to go on and sit the certification exam with AWs but need some recognition of your effort.

The certificate can be downloaded as a PDF file and printed. Click for a sample Certificate of Completion.



Most students follow the lab notes carefully and get through the course with no problems. If you do run into problems, help is never far away.

When you enrol in a course with BackSpace Academy you are automatically enrolled in a private student group and support forum. If you have a question, just post it on the forum and the instructor will get back to you within 24 hrs. Other students may also provide an answer for you even sooner.
