AWS Certification: is it worth it

Many times debates and arguments have arisen concerning whether or not certificates are the only essentials to getting a good job. What is the value of a certificate? Do they really represent a skill?

Well, AWS certifications are not an exception. Many questions have also arisen about them. Is AWS certification worth it? What are the chances of getting your dream job with and without an AWS certification?

There is really no exact answer to that question as there are a couple of other attributes that contribute to AWS certifications (which we are going to discuss in a bit) but first, what does it mean to be AWS certified?

An AWS certification can be defined as a certain level of expertise of Amazon Web Services obtained by an IT professional, after passing an exam, or multiple exams, offered by the public cloud provider.
