The Full AWS CWI Training Course

Online Training for Parts A, B &C of the AWS CWI Exam


Welcome to the Atlas AWS CWI Online Training Course. This online course is designed to provide you with the easiest way to learn the AWS CWI exam study material that you will need to know to pass the exam. Our online learning platform allows you to study from anywhere there is an internet connection. You can start and stop at will and repeat the material as often as you like.

The lessons are set up as PowerPoint presentations with a voice-over from the instructor. The lesson quizzes are loaded with AWS CWI questions and answers that will help prepare you for the exam while building your confidence. Some questions and answers are read and recorded on audio flashcards. These audio flashcards can be played while driving, working, or just relaxing. This is exclusive to Atlas and is not offered by other AWS CWI schools.

It takes many hours to prepare for the exam properly. Our online course will not waste your time learning material that will not be covered on the exam. Our CWI courses include practice packages covering all the critical AWS CWI exam study materials. The courses cover only the vital information. There is a lot of stuff to learn in a 5 or 10-day AWS CWI seminar given by some AWS CWI schools.

The AWS CWI exam pass rate is from 25 to 30 percent for the first attempt, and this is due to a lack of adequate preparation. Proper preparation for this exam requires a great deal of dedication and time. There is a lot of material available to study in preparation for the exam. Our 60-hour full CWI course provides a student a proper course structure and will not cover unimportant material to unnecessarily lengthen the course. Our goal is to increase the AWS CWI exam pass rate of our students to 100%. For those that do not pass the first time, the course will be available again for free.

With this course, you can prepare for the Parts A, B, and C of the CWI exam on your own time. There is no need to miss work and spend a lot of money traveling for conventional classroom training. Below is a breakdown of the course curriculum that is covered.

    Please Note the Following:

    Our goal at Atlas is to provide you the necessary tools to pass the certification exam the very first time you try. Many of our students have considered themselves more hands-on when it comes to training courses. After taking our online training courses, these students have discovered that not only is online training a more economical way to prepare for a certification exam, but that online training is just a better way to learn the material. With the online training course, the student can start and stop whenever he/she may want. Students may also progress at their own pace, repeat material when needed, and use the interactive quizzes to train. This is by far the easiest way to study. The Atlas 48 hour money back guarantee means that you can check out the course with zero risks. If you are not happy with your purchase, we will gladly refund your money with no questions asked.
