My 2-Step Successful AWS Community Application Process

posted in: Uncategorized | 3

Hey there Family! As you know that from now until Monday, August 30, 2021, AWS is accepting applications for its next cycle of AWS Community Builders. I have taken the time to discuss my 2-step process towards writing a successful AWS Community Builders application.



The two steps are:

  • Content Creation
  • Certification

Content Is Key

The AWS Community Builders Program application has 4-6 slots for URLs. I have copied and pasted my blog posts, YouTube videos and Periscope (Twitter Live) videos. The committee values content because they want to see how you communicate. I have also created two articles (the resources I’ve used to pass my certification and lessons learned from that certification) to help my readers.


Because I am living proof that one certification can change your life. My Project Management Professional (PMP) has literally changed my life. When I write I think about the same outcome from my audience. You are only one certification from a better career and life.

AWS also sees its Community Builders as program ambassadors so being able to communicate is huge!


When I applied in March 2021 I had 1 Oracle Cloud, 2 AWS and 3 Azure certifications. I brought up this point because you could have non-AWS certifications and still get selected. Honestly I thought that I would had been disqualified; but, here I was selected into the AWS Community Builder May 2021 cohort.

I would encourage you to apply even if you don’t have any AWS certifications. The program is all about your present cloud computing knowledge. So if you have Azure, Oracle Cloud, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Alibaba, ServiceNow, Salesforce or IBM, get out there and apply!

Bonus Tip – Know What Track You Want To Be On

I have selected the machine learning track. Per my March 2021 application, there were also Big Data, databases, applications and IT governance. Choose your top two just in case you don’t into your first choice.

There are you have it! My 2-step process that I’ve used to successfully apply for the AWS Community Builders Program this past March 2021. This is only a guide and not definitive or officially AWS. I just want to be able to help you the reader to improve your chances. Good luck and remember you can now apply for the next cycle
