Exam Readiness: AWS Certified Machine Learning - Specialty Course Find Course Details:

This course prepares you to take the AWS Certified Machine Learning – Specialty exam, which validates your ability to design, implement, deploy, and maintain machine learning (ML) solutions.

You will learn key test-taking strategies and will put them into action, taking multiple study questions. Once you’ve honed your skills, you’ll have the chance to take a quiz that will help you assess your areas of strength and weakness, so that you’ll know what to emphasize in your pre-exam studies.

In this course, you’ll learn about the logistics of the exam and the mechanics of exam questions, and you’ll explore the exam’s technical domains. You’ll review core AWS services and key concepts for the exam domains:

  1. Data Engineering
  2. Exploratory Data Analysis
  3. Modeling
  4. Machine Learning Implementation and Operations
