Terraform Certification

The Terraform Associate certification is for Cloud Engineers specializing in operations, IT, or developers who know the basic concepts and skills associated with open source HashiCorp Terraform. Candidates will be best prepared for this exam if they have professional experience using Terraform in production, but performing the exam objectives in a personal demo environment may also be sufficient.

Since this exam is multiple-choice, multiple-answer, and fill in the banks' questions, we need a lot of practice before the exam. This article helps you understand, practice, and get you ready for the exam. All the questions and answers are taken straight from their documentation. These are only practice questions.
