Develop these skills and you're good to go:

  • Designing and deploying scalable, highly available, and fault tolerant systems on AWS
  • Lift and shift of an existing on-premises application to AWS
  • Ingress and egress of data to and from AWS
  • Selecting the appropriate AWS service based on data, database, or security requirements
  • Identifying appropriate use of AWS architectural best practices
  • Estimating AWS costs and identifying cost control mechanisms

First and most importantly, you need excellent Programming and Networking Skills. Because an AWS solutions architect has to deal with a lot of network and configuration related queries, it is very important to have good networking knowledge. Should have knowledge about Cloud Storage and AWS Cloud Architecture. This should be enough, other skills you will be trained for after getting the job.
