Overview

Everything you need to prepare for and pass the AWS Certified Developer - Associate (DVA-C01) exam.

Overview

The AWS Certified Developer - Associate (DVA-C01) Training Course is a complete, self-paced study solution that is designed to fit into your busy schedule. Learn through expert video-based lessons enhanced with hands-on labs, selected readings, self-study quizzes, plus exclusive Pearson Test Prep practice exams to help you determine your preparedness for the exam.

AWS Certified Developer - Associate (DVA-C01) Training Course focuses on the role-based certification, AWS Developer Associate. According to Amazon, "this exam validates proficiency in developing, deploying, and debugging cloud-based applications using AWS." Amazon Web Services currently has more than 130 individual services available for use. Each service falls into an overarching category such as compute, storage, database, networking, and so on. The AWS Developer Associate focuses on those services and concepts relevant to developers using, or intending to use, AWS services to create their applications. This course covers the published blueprint for the Associate Level Certified Developer exam.

This course is not intended to teach you to how program or develop applications. The goal is to help you understand the services available to run the applications you develop through live demonstration. Each lesson begins with a walk-through to provide an overview of the topic, and then goes into demonstration mode. Most of the demonstrations in this course are accomplished with a free AWS Trial Account so you can follow along. This course takes a lab-based approach to teaching, which means we will focus on how to develop throughout the training so you can get some hands-on experience working in AWS. You will also learn about the objectives in the exam, but the emphasis is on doing, so you can gain the experience needed to develop in AWS as well as pass the test. Each lesson has a lab-based exercise that walks you through concepts and allows you to dive into a project.

Course includes

  • 14 hours of video-based lessons enhanced with selected readings curated by industry experts
  • Hands-on labs to simulate real-world environments
  • Self-study quizzes to test your progress as you work through the course
  • Flash cards to study key terms
  • Exclusive Pearson Test Prep practice exams to determine your preparedness for the exam
