This course covers the essentials of Machine Learning on AWS and prepares a candidate to sit for the AWS Machine Learning-Specialty (ML-S) Certification exam. Four main categories are covered: Data Engineering, EDA (Exploratory Data Analysis), Modeling, and Operations. The course offers the following tools to help users pass the exam:
  • Quizzes: Each lesson module includes a five-question multiple-choice quiz in the style of the AWS ML exam. There are 39 quizzes, with a total of 195 questions.
  • Practice Exam: A multiple-choice practice exam is included in the style of the AWS ML exam. This exam totals 50 questions and takes one hour to complete.


This 7+ hour Complete Video Course is fully geared toward the AWS Machine Learning-Specialty (ML-S) Certification exam. The course offers a modular lesson and sublesson approach, with a mix of screencasting and headhsot treatment.
  • Data Engineering instruction covers the ingestion, cleaning, and maintenance of data on AWS.* Exploratory Data Analysis covers topics including data visualization, descriptive statistics, and dimension reduction and includes information on relevant AWS services.
  • Machine Learning Modeling covers topics including feature engineering, performance metrics, overfitting, and algorithm selection.
  • Operations covers deploying models, A/B testing, using AI services versus training your own model, and proper cost utilization.

Each module offers module quizzes and a practice exam in multiple-choice format.
