Take the Developer – Associate and Solutions Architect – Associate at the same time?

Hello everyone.

I just passed my Cloud Practitioner today.

I am thinking to arrange two tests for AWS Certified Developer – Associate and AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate two weeks after.

I’m not sure whether if it’s possible because I found both of the syllabuses are overlapping.


Possibility really depends on your knowledge, and one of the practice tests on Developer might be worth it to help you make a decision on if you can do them that close or if you need more time to study the sections specific to the Developer track.

It would be possible and they do overlap quite a bit, I would recommend doing the SAA first though as I found that was the most overlapping certification, it had quite a bit over the cloud practitioner and developer, although the developer has quite a bit more around the tooling used for deployments etc.

I took the Solutions Architect Associate a week after my cloud practitioner, it was quite a bit of a jump, however, I feel there was more of a jump from Solutions Architect Associate to Developer. If you actually get the hands-on experience I feel that it is totally possible but for some people, it may take retries.

Thanks. I think I would use two weeks to revise the course again.

no problem, an extra 2 weeks can really help 🙂
