U.S. tech budgets will be expanding through this year and into 2022, so there is no better time to switch to a new well-paid career in the industry, particularly if you choose to specialize in Amazon Web Services. AWS keeps growing rapidly, and it’s already the largest cloud services provider on the planet. Yet, certified AWS Solutions architects are in short supply, and they can earn more than $165,000 a year.

You can start training for that career now with The 2021 Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate Exam Prep Bundle, which can get you started in an entry-level architect position and take you all the way up to IT engineer level.
