  • 30m
  • 30 questions
The AWS Deployment Competency benchmark measures your ability to prepare application deployment packages to be deployed to AWS and AWS Elastic Beanstalk. You will be evaluated on your skills to deploy written code in AWS using existing CI/CD pipelines, processes, and patterns. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to deploy serverless applications.
