Registration

To expedite registration, AWS Certification test applicants can complete our online Request Form.  This form enables us to better assist applicants with their specific test requirements and to ensure the appropriate tests are selected. It also allows us to anticipate and better accommodate test scheduling needs as all AWS testing is arranged in advance on a limited space availability basis.

Upon receiving an applicant’s Request Form, our ATF Representative will review the information and assist the applicant with test selection.  After the test(s) have been selected, the applicant will receive an e-registration packet with important instructions regarding testing and test date, invoice and payment, and facility policies.
