Free Self Paced trainings and labs on Amazon Web Services


Please find below the details of FREE AWS trainings and labs provided which I got via email communication. Sharing the same for your reference.

AWS has released a new training series called “Introduction to AWS” ( )

This series features free and on-demand instructional videos combined with free self-paced labs to enable those who are new to AWS to learn about an AWS service in 30 minutes or less.

Our first set of videos and labs include the below topics:
•       Introduction to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
•       Introduction to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
•       Introduction to AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
•       Introduction to Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS)
•       Introduction to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)
•       Introduction to Elastic Load Balancing

Users can start by watching a short video about each AWS service to learn about key concepts and terminology and to see a step-by-step console demonstration. Videos are available on the Amazon Web Services YouTube ( ) channel under “Training & Certification”.  Following the video, users can get hands-on practice using the AWS service with a free self-paced training lab.

In case you have not started using AWS, you can do so asap, it works on a self-service model and the best way to learn about AWS is to just get started. Use a valid local credit card, sign up for an AWS account and get started right away. We work on a pay per use, pay as you go model.

You can get started right away by just creating an account at with a valid local credit card. By signing-in to the AWS Management Console, you can start spinning-up server instances in 2-3 minutes and get admin access ( RDP / SSH) to those instances straight away.

You are also eligible for a free tier which contains enough credits for you to start playing around with our services. Just to reiterate, this is not a free account – as long as you stay within the usage limits of this tier you will not be charged. When you start exceeding usage limits mentioned in free usage tier, you will be charged by the hour for the resources you are using. Please find more information at Refer Free Tier Getting Started Guide for more information. And you can always monitor your estimated AWS bill using our billing alerts.

Happy Learning.
