About this course

This required pre-class setup and lab helps ensure you have the best training experience. It creates your training environment and includes a series of three challenges to assess your skills. To complete this lab download and follow the instructions in the attached PDF.

We have merged our pre-class setup and an assessment lab into a single document. If you can complete all the setup items, which includes specific challenges that test your hands-on Amazon Web Services skills, you are well prepared to take the class. There are four levels of achievement which you can use to determine if you need additional practice before coming to class. This assumes you complete the required setup within an hour or less. If it takes many hours or days you should self-assess as being one level lower:

  • Stage 0 (unable to complete the first requirements): Please take the CCSK Plus and gain additional hands-on cloud practice or obtain equivalent experience. You will struggle to complete the labs and your required training environment is not properly configured.
  • Stage 1: You will be able to complete 30% or more of the labs and understand all the lecture, but will likely struggle and may need to do additional work over breaks and evenings if you want to keep up. Your environment meets the minimum configuration to participate.
  • Stage 2: You should be able to complete around 60% of the labs in the allotted classroom time but may drop off in areas. You will be able to obtain the knowledge but will likely need to finish some of the labs after training.
  • Stage 3: You should be able to complete 90% of the labs, and should need to spend minimal time on the core labs outside the classroom. You may still struggle a bit outside your areas of experience (e.g. if you don’t code, those labs will be more difficult).
