AWS Media Services training at a glance

The Learning Path provides a structured and comprehensive roadmap of how to grow your expertise with AWS Media Services. You can progress along a curated path, from foundational video concepts to technical deep dives.

Through the Learning Path you can access digital courses, videos, tutorials, and self-paced labs.

The training is organized into four paths designed to provide numerous entry points depending on your skill level and area of need:

If you want hands-on practice using the services in the AWS Management Console in a supported environment, there are self-paced online labs. Each lab has its own AWS training account and walks you through procedures with detailed step-by-step instructions.

Navigating the page

From the Learning Path, you can also view information about each course within a workflow so that you can easily scan the courses available, read a description, determine how long it will take to complete, and then directly access the course content via a simple click of a link.

Getting started

There are two ways to access AWS Media Services training:

  1. You can access the Media Services Learning Path here. From the landing page you can explore each of the curated paths and launch digital courses. This will take you to the AWS Digital Training platform. When accessing the AWS platform for the first time, you will need to sign in and create an account.
  1. You can also explore the broader AWS Learning Library. View and search the full catalog of available training across all AWS services. As with the previous method, you will need to sign in and create an account if you haven’t already done so.

To view all the available training related to AWS Media Services in the library, simply select the “Media Services” domain in the navigation pane.
