I Passed my Certification in August 2018, taking Live online classes, exam prep videos, recommended faqs reading and the practice tests provided buy IaaS Academy.  The practice tests were significantly harder than the actual exam, which is the preferred way to go, study harder to prepare.

These practice tests help tremendously especially the answer explanation at the end. I will recommend the IaaS Academy to anyone wanting to learn AWS both for the exam and the real world.



Johnny Burton

I have been studying for AWS CSA Associate exam since June and got enrolled in a number of online courses. I find this course most clear and informative in theory and practice with many teaching tools that help a student to gain and retain information that is needed for a success. 

  • Values your time: they respond very quickly to any requests or need for clarifications during the sessions or throughout the week in between the sessions. 
  • Makes this 6-week course a real accomplishing experience.
  • They assign homework and provide a great support for its completion.

Great appreciation and recognition to IAAS Academy for numerous hours to create this 6-week intense course and continuous dedication to their students
