AWS Certified

Poplatekcrew achieved 10 new AWS certificates in a year – Are you up for the challenge?

One of Poplatek’s values is development, both as an organisation and as individuals. A key ingredient to achieve this is education. This year Poplatekcrew achieved 10 AWS certificates, and we are aiming to achieve at least 20 more by the end of 2019. And now we challenge you!

This year, 10 of our experts enrolled and were certified as AWS Solutions Architect, Developer, and Security specialists. We are eager to learn, and our hunger for new knowledge does not stop here. It has only began.


Our 2018’s certification portfolio:

7 x AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate

2 x AWS Certified Developer – Associate

1 x AWS Certified Security – Speciality


Disclaimer: These certifications have been done specifically this year. Previous or upcoming certifications (test results coming in January), have not been taken into account.

AWS sertifikaatit


There are three levels of knowledge in AWS certifications. There’s the foundation, Cloud Practitioner, in which the very basics of AWS skills are taught. Next level is the Associate level, which covers the topic more in-depth. There are three tracks in the Associate level in which one can specialize to: Solutions Architect, Developer, and SysOps Administrator.


The highest level for AWS certifications is Professional. In the Professional level, you can either specialize in Solutions Architect, or DevOps Engineer. In addition, there are speciality certifications in Advanced Networking, Big Data, and Security.


Our next goal is to double the amount to 20 new certifications


We want to continue building our professionality base, especially in cloud services. We believe that getting the right education can make a long way. We encourage everyone from juniors to seniors to accomplish these certificates and develop their own knowledge and skills. We aim to be certified professionals. Currently our goal is to have at least 20 new certified AWS Solutions Architect/DevOps Engineer associates and professionals by the end of the year 2019. In addition, we aim to have 4 other speciality certifications along these certifications.


Activate yourself – 3 steps to success!


1. Find the right level for you. You don’t have to aim for the pro at first try.

2. Find the right people. Seek for the ones in your inner (or outer) circles who have done these exams as well. Ask for tips.

3. Find the best ways to learn. Again, ask for tips and seek information. It takes time, but it’s definitely worth it.


Yes. It is that simple. You’ve now been officially challenged to do at least ONE AWS certificate in 2019. Are you ready for it?
