Anyone can bundle a few courses and call it a learning path. But that’s just not our style. When we set out to build our Career Learning Paths, we knew they needed to provide a clear path for individual advancement, and a clear strategic value to businesses focused on organizational talent development and resource planning.
Tapping into our expertise from helping more than a million engineers learn new skills, we spent hours determining the optimum paths to take students from beginners to gurus, and how to tie them into our larger platform. 17 whiteboards and at least 300 coffees later, we knew we had something truly special…

Our Career Learning Paths guide you to the exact skills you need to master to progress from novice to expert to guru in multiple specialized domains.
By focusing on a specialized career track, you can build on your knowledge and carry momentum from one certification to the next.
Use our levels as a gauge for your cloud skills, and advance levels as you advance your skills. Think of it like an RPG for your cloud career.
Getting your team to the cloud is super important, but once they’re there, you can start developing career-specific expertise in a structured, predictable manner.
Launching a new deployment? Expanding a successful initiative? Beefing up your security or DevOps teams? Career Learning Paths provide a quick route to hitting your resourcing goals.
Help your best talent get even better. Professional-level certifications don’t just validate the pinnacle of cloud knowledge, they can also be requirements for certain accreditations.
The cloud is a really big place. So big that it can be tough to know where to start or where to go next. That’s why we created our Career Learning Paths, to provide a map to mastery in six distinct career tracks. Each path starts at the Novice level and advances through Apprentice, Practitioner, and Professional levels before culminating in the Guru level.
While each path contains certification courses, they are not certification-based. They are skills and knowledge-based, and draw on multiple non-certification courses and labs to build more well-rounded, domain-specific expertise.
The cloud is not a thing. It's a vast, interconnected web of things. An ecosystem of things. The Architect Path will help you understand this ecosystem, how different services interact with one another, and how to make the best use of them, while also going deep on services considered foundational for day-to-day cloud architects.
