Grow your cloud skills with 19 new hands-on AWS Builder Labs

We’re pleased to share that we’ve released 19 new AWS Builder Labs this month, specifically geared to help individuals in developer, cloud architect, cloud engineer, and cloud administrator roles reinforce their learning across various topics including Containers, Developing, Serverless, Networking, Security and AWS Well-Architected Framework. These new AWS Builder Labs are part of our collection of 150+ self-paced labs in AWS Skill Builder subscription.

What are AWS Builder Labs?

AWS Builder Labs help learners gain technical AWS Cloud skills via hands-on, interactive learning in an AWS Management Console practice environment. With guided exercises and step-by-step instructions, AWS Builder Labs help individuals develop practical skills for common cloud scenarios. You receive a sandbox AWS account for the duration of the lab and there is no need for you to use your own AWS account and risk accruing unwanted charges.

Learners repeatedly tell us that they learn best and can apply their knowledge most effectively in their daily work when they can get hands-on with AWS services. Our new labs are part of our catalog of 150+ AWS Builder Labs in the AWS Skill Builder online learning center. With a Skill Builder subscription, you can access all the AWS Builder labs, as well as AWS Cloud Quest, AWS Industry Quest, AWS Jam Journey, and AWS exam prep resources.
