Amazon Marketing Cloud (AMC) Certification launches on the learning console

1 June 2023

What’s launched?

Amazon Marketing Cloud (AMC) is a secure clean-room environment designed to analyze cross-channel marketing efforts, generate custom reporting and obtain unique insights. The new AMC Certification, available for free in the learning console, offers a curated learning path for analytics practitioners to acquire how to perform analyses and explore insights in AMC, then validates AMC knowledge with a certification assessment. The optional six-course learning path will cover the AMC user interface, explain event tables and key fields, review how to write queries and explore advanced capabilities, such as building rule-based audiences to activate in Amazon DSP. Once ready, learners can take a certification assessment to test their AMC knowledge.

Why is it important?

When using AMC, advertisers have the flexibility to define what business questions are most important to explore, such as illustrating the shopping journey or assessing how media channels contribute to sales. Business leaders can feel confident that SQL-skilled analytics professionals with the AMC Certification can help their organization craft sophisticated reports that will help them make decisions to optimize advertising campaigns. Certified advertisers can showcase their completion badge on social media to let clients, colleagues and employers know that Amazon Ads has validated their AMC expertise.
