What to fill in last name while creating new AWS certification account?


I am trying to create a new AWS certification account and I am asked to mandatorily provide a last name. What should I fill here, since my government IDs only have my first name? (Urgent)

First Name and Last Name are mandatory for AWS Certification. But I do understand the fact that "It is okay to not have a surname"

I believe you are stuck in this page,

Please verify your name before you proceed to your AWS Certification Account. https://www.certmetrics.com/amazon/candidate/verify_name.aspx?msg=true

To resolve this issue, I would suggest you to contact AWS Training and Certification, https://support.aws.amazon.com/#/contacts/aws-training

You may visit the above link and scroll down the page and fill up the form and someone from AWS will respond to you shortly with a solution.

  • I attempted to get in touch with the AWS Training and Certification Support team. I haven't heard anything from them yet. It's been 24 hours.

  • You may wait for about 48 hours more and see, most probably you should get a reply by that timeframe. As you know it was a little busy schedule for the past 4 days due to AWS re:Invent 2022. Hopefully they will respond back to you in the next couple of days.
