AWS consolidates certification exam delivery with one partner, Pearson VUE.

To simplify the overall testing experience for candidates, AWS is moving to Pearson VUE for exclusive worldwide delivery of AWS Certification exams, which will provide candidates with a single point of contact to serve all their testing requirements. The transition will take effect on January 1, 2023.

AWS Certifications validate AWS Cloud knowledge, skills, and expertise. Candidates take an exam to earn one of AWS’s foundational, role-based, or specialty certifications. To maintain their high bar for earning an AWS Certification, their exams are taken in a proctored, timed environment.

Through their partnership with Pearson VUE, AWS offers flexible, convenient options for taking exams so that candidates can select what works best for them. The AWS Certification exams are available through Pearson VUE® Authorized Test Centers and through the online OnVUE platform.
