What Is AWS IQ for Experts?

AWS IQ is a service that helps customers get hands-on help with Amazon Web Services (AWS). If you are based in the United States and have an active AWS certification (Associate, Professional, or Specialty), you can sign up to become an expert in AWS IQ. As an expert, you can get paid for work you complete for customers within their AWS account.

How It Works

In the AWS IQ console, customers create requests for hands-on help. Experts respond to the requests. As an expert, you can see requests when customers create them. Before you start working on a project, customers and experts typically chat and exchange information about the request in more detail. After you understand the scope of the work, you create a proposal with tasks, milestones, and payment terms. Customers grant you task-appropriate permissions to their AWS account, and you perform the work on their behalf in their account. You get paid as work is completed.
