Get Real with Hands-On Labs
Real, scenario-based labs in instantly-deployed environments. Available anytime, anywhere. Learn a new skill in as little as 15 minutes!
"The hands-on labs are all set up for you to dig right into the training so that all you have to do is follow the videos or content. You can follow along in a true, live environment and practice what you’re learning in the comfort of knowing that if something breaks, it’s okay because you can just restart the lab. The labs have helped me tremendously because it reinforces previous lessons and I’m a repetition guy. I have to keep doing it and doing it to reinforce it to the point that I feel comfortable."

“The interactive diagrams are fantastic! Like most engineers, I’m very visual when thinking about systems. I earn my living standing at a whiteboard in a conference room full of people, listening to requirements and mapping out solutions on the board. The Orion Papers will be in my mind’s eye for everything I do with AWS going forward.”
