Take Advantage of AWS Self-Paced Labs

AWS is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. And to acknowledge and thank our customers and APN partners, we’ve partnered with qwikLABS to offer the entire catalog of AWS self-paced labs and learning quests at no charge through the end of March.

AWS self-paced labs enable you to get hands-on practice working with AWS services in a real environment.  We currently offer 90+ labs, ranging from beginner to expert topics.  Many labs are also organized into 15 learning quests that help you learn how to work with related AWS services.  Labs are a great way to build new skills – and confidence – on AWS.

Here are some ways that you – and your customers – can take advantage of labs this month:

Learn a Service

Experiment with new AWS services or features at your own pace.  Our Introduction to AWS series – which is always available to you at no cost – helps you get started working with 30+ AWS services, such as Amazon S3, Amazon VPC, or Amazon DynamoDB.  Now you can also take more advanced labs at no cost to practice additional concepts and use cases with these services.

Practice a Use Case

Get comfortable with AWS scenarios for websites, big data, digital media and more.  Learning quests have six or more labs each to help you get experience working with related services.  When you complete a quest, you’ll earn a badge that you can show off on your resume, website, or LinkedIn profile.

Study for AWS Certification

Preparing to take your AWS Certification exam?  Now is a great time to get practice with services and concepts covered on the AWS Certified Solutions Architect exams.  Exam Prep Quests have six to nine labs each.
