This course is delivered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

This course teaches systems operators and anyone performing system operations functions how to install, configure, automate, monitor, secure, maintain and troubleshoot the services, networks, and systems on AWS necessary to support business applications. The course also covers specific AWS features, tools, and best practices related to these functions.

The final day is an AWS Jam, a gamified event, with teams competing to score points by completing a
series of challenges according to established best practices based on concepts covered in the course. You get to experience a wide range of AWS services in a series of real-world scenarios that represent common operational and troubleshooting tasks. The end result is developing, enhancing, and validating your skillsets in the AWS Cloud through real-world problem solving, exploring new services, features, and understanding how they interoperate.

This course includes instructor presentation, hands-on labs, demonstrations, group knowledge checks, and team-based gamified challenge.
