AWS SysOps Administrator Associate

An AWS SysOps Administrator plays a critical role in managing and operating AWS environments. They not only ensure the reliability, security, and performance of AWS infrastructure, automate operational tasks, and provide support but also implement best practices to optimize resource utilization and reduce costs.


The Operations Learning Path is designed for candidates who want to learn how to create automatable and repeatable deployments of applications, networks, and systems on the AWS platform. This path is commonly pursued by those working as Systems Administrators, IT Administrators, or DevOps Engineers. If your responsibility is to take care of your company’s AWS environment, from operational management to handling data flow, then this is the certification you should take next. Since this is another associate-level certification, you can start your SysOps career with this certificate and level up your AWS knowledge in preparation for more difficult certification exams.


The main focus of this exam is provisioning, operating, and maintaining systems running on AWS, deployment, management, orchestration, and general operations of AWS services. You must also be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the monitoring, network, and security services in AWS. Having prior experience as a systems administrator will benefit you greatly since a good intuition in operational management is required for this role.
