Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Immersion Day?
An Immersion Day allows hands-on time with AWS services under the guidance of Solution Architects for a particular topic. They are designed by topic, and typically have 2-4 presentations along with 2-4 hands on labs that follow a continuous thread to help learners become familiar with the service. These events are a common starting point for customers looking to prepare to use a service or solution in a meaningful project.

Do I need experience using AWS services to attend the event?
Not at all. You might want to plan on attending the monthly Introduction to AWS session we offer if this will be your first time using AWS services.

Will there be any hands on during the event?
Most of the events offer “hands on” labs to help you get to know a service. Please check in the description of the immersion day session to see if hands on labs are included.

Will using the services during the event cost me money?
During the immersion day sessions, you will be given an AWS account for the day to perform the labs in a temporary environment. The exception to this is the Control Tower Immersion Day. Control Tower itself has no cost associated with it, but the different services you utilize will determine the cost.

Do I need an AWS account to attend?
Not at all. However, if you would like help setting up your account, just let your moderator know when you join and we will setup a time that works for you.

How many events can I attend?
There are no restrictions on the number of events you can attend.

What should I do if I do not receive a confirmation email after registering?    
Please reach out to and make sure you include the event title and date in your email.

What happens if I show up late?
We understand things happen and sometimes you may need to join late. Please plan to join the event at the beginning so we can set you up with the temporary AWS account. If you join the event late, you may not receive a temporary account. You would need to either use your own AWS account (which may incur costs), or you can watch the labs as a demo and work on them in your own AWS account at a later date.

Do I need to download anything before the event?
For most events, nothing is required. If your event requires any special downloads, it will be referenced in the email confirmation you receive. Depending on the platform for the event, you may need to download the client to participate.

What virtual event platform are the Immersion Days delivered on?
We are utilizing Webex. For specific platform and operating system requirements please visit:

What browser can I use?
For web versions of the training platform, we recommend the Chrome browser. For specific platform and operating system requirements please visit:

Do I have to stay for the entire event?
There is no time requirement, however, we don’t record the sessions so you could miss important information if you leave early. Many of the events happen on a reoccurring basis, so you can possibly attend another session if you have to leave early.

Will I be given a recording of the event?
These events are not recorded.

Should I use my company email to register?
We request that you use your company email to register. By registering with your company email, we can quickly and easily get you connected with your account team.

Will I be given a copy of the slides presented during the event?
We will share a copy of the presentation slides after the immersion day session.

Are Sessions offered in any other language?
At this time, we will have sessions available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Not all sessions are available in all languages. The delivery language will be noted on the specific event.

We do not recommend handling any production environment workloads during this workshop. Please refer to the session description for additional information.
