Definitely skip it. Go for the AWS SA Associate instead... even if you do not plan on being an architect.

I have zero technical background. How does this certification help? Do I have to take a test?

I'm a certified cloud practitioner and its an exercise in jargon. However I can't imagine them hiring someone who can't pass that test with ease.

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team.
