If you’re a beginner looking for a clear starting point to help you build a career or learn to use different database technologies and architectures, we recommend you start with an AWS Learning Plan.
This set of on-demand courses will help grow your technical skills to design, plan, and manage purpose-built databases and unlock innovation.

Learn step-by-step with the AWS Database Learning Plan: Database Fundamentals

AWS Learning Plans offer a suggested set of digital courses designed to give beginners a clear path to learn. AWS Database Learning Plans eliminate the guesswork—you don’t have to wonder if you’re starting in the right place or taking the right courses.

You’ll be guided through a recommended curriculum built by AWS experts that you can take at your own pace. Complete the full plan, or choose the courses that interest you. Start with the fundamentals plan as a beginner, or skip to learning plans for migration, relational, and non-relational databases. After you complete the plans, you’ll be better able to migrate, design, and manage databases and have gained skills to help you enter careers in database administration, data engineering, and system operations. You’ll also have gained an understanding of AWS services like Amazon RDS and Amazon ElastiCache.
