The most common software engineering / developer certifications offered today are the Amazon Web Services (AWSD) certification, the CompTIA A+ or the Cisco CCNA certifications. There are others that offer shorter certifications like the Windows Server Developer Certification, Linux Red Hat Linux Certified System Administrator’s Certification or the Linux Foundation Certified System Engineer’s Certification. If you choose to get the Amazon Web Services (AWSD) certification, you will have to purchase the AWS account before you can take the exam. The exam is based on the installation and implementation of the fundamentals of Amazon Web Services. This includes using the AWS APIs, virtualization, IaaS, APIs, software configuration management and scale models.
Some of the other certifications have a lower fee than the AWS program cost. However, some of these lower-level certification programs cost as much as the AWS fee. If you need the certification and are concerned with the price, you may want to consider getting the lower level certification first and then taking the AWS exam. For those that have experience with the Amazon APIs already, this will be easier and less expensive.
Another way to save money when you are looking into obtaining one of the Software Engineering / Developer certifications is to get the exam and then go straight to a school that is board certified. Many of the IT schools out there have made their written exams accessible for the public through CLEP and exam review sites. You will pay a certain amount of money for either the written exam or the oral exam. The fee is very nominal when compared to the cost of the certification. The exam costs less than one hundred and twenty dollars. Therefore, if you can pay an additional application fee, it would be a better investment than taking the certification.
The AWS examination is also available through written exams and an application fee. The fee is just over one hundred and twenty dollars. If you want to become a fully qualified AWS Associate Safety Professional, you will need three years of work experience as a project manager in a construction company. There is no requirement that an associate safety professional to complete the exam with the AWS certification. If you are unable to take the exam with the AWS certification, you can always request to take a practice test.
The other certified safety examinations that are offered by the OSHA are the Certified Steel Engineer (CSE) exam and the Certified Automotive Safety Technician (CAS) exam. Both of these engineering certifications require that the applicant take the exam and pass it within five years. The AWS certification will cost more than the CSE or theAS because of the application fee. The certified safety engineer will also have to pay for the exam fee as well as the training costs associated with it.
Applying for either the certification or the training will require an application fee of at least two thousand five hundred dollars or more. If you go to a regular college or university, you will be required to pay for this application fee as well. Many schools will accept the applications of both parties. Your local labor office can give information about schools that do not charge for the applications. The IT department at your local community college may also help you find a program that does not require an application fee. There is a local software development company that will offer the training as well as the certification for one thousand and five hundred dollars each.
Both of the courses are offered online and will require you to access the training and exam fee online. This means that you can have the training on hold at work or even at home and still take the exam on your off time if needed. You can also go to a local community college or a technical college and take these courses as well. This will still give you the opportunity to learn the information that you need to become a Software Engineer or a Game Designer and get certified in one of those fields.
