We designed this learning path to give students a solid foundation in I.T. and AWS fundamentals that will serve as a springboard into intermediate certification and deep dive courses. When you complete this learning path, you will have the required knowledge and skills to enroll in any AWS Certification (associate level) course.
This course is for the absolute beginner. Have you ever wanted to know, in very simple terms, the answer to the following questions?: What is the cloud? What is AWS? What are AWS's core services? Why do we use AWS? If you answered yes to any of these, then this course is for you. Our goal with this course is to provide a simple, conceptual introduction to the concepts of Cloud Computing, Amazon Web Services, and it's core services. There are no technical explanations or definitions to memorize — this course is visual, and strictly conceptual. When you are done with this course, you will have the conceptual foundation to move forward onto more advanced AWS courses. By having the frame-of-reference understanding from this course, you will be more prepared to tackle the more complex technical concepts and terminology.

AWS Essentials is a course for those who are completely new to AWS. No prior AWS experience is required. We will introduce you to AWS, provide an overview of the core AWS services, and walk you through the process of setting up your own AWS account. Your learning will be reinforced with real-world scenario hands-on activities using our Live Environment, and quizzes will be used to help check your understanding of the presented topics.
