For deloitte we have a whole page for AWS where you can reach out to training lead for questions . I completed the aws cloud practitioner exam by only preparing for one week. Not technical at all . It is like playing a game where you know what you want to do . 100 min exam I completed in 30 and passed it . Just some motivation

Following. I’m on the same boat - I’m well versed in technology / architecture but not a super technical person. A lot of people have said to get a cloud cert though

Not very. I’m technical but have limited knowledge of the AWS cloud. I did a course on udemy before taking the exam

Do you mind sharing the course?

You can do it through Amazon. It’s free for employees with a nominal fee for non employees

Mind sharing a link if possible?

I’d predict 30-40 hours of training if brand new to all content to pass Exam.

Cloud guru is a good resource and it was around $30/month when I last used it.
