I passed the exams but I’m still missing the credits. For the credits I was planning on doing an MBA but now I’m not sure. Any advise? NY license here so the passed exams don’t expire

How many credits do you need?

30

I was short credits so I took online courses. There are a lot of options, but I went with LSU Online. Least expensive and I could go at my own pace.

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM. I come from a Big4 consulting firm with a background in Enterprise Performance. I’ll be honest and say I’m not feeling very safe in my current role with the ongoing layoffs. Instead of leaving, I’d love to go back to my “consulting roots” and join the ProServ team. I’m taking my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam next weekend. Hoping this freeze is lifted soon.
