Bootcamps are an opportunity to dive deep into existing skills and learn new ways of working with AWS. This year, we’re offering Technical Bootcamps, Partner Bootcamps and AWS Certification Exam Readiness Bootcamps. Bootcamps are offered Monday – Thursday and run either half-day (8:00AM – 12:00PM and 1:00PM – 5:00PM) or for a full day (9:00AM – 5:00PM).
Note: All students must bring their own laptop (Windows/OSX/Linux all supported)—tablets are not appropriate. We also recommend having the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.
To register for one or more bootcamps, you must first register for the re:Invent conference.
Each bootcamp costs $225 — $600 in addition to the re:Invent conference pass.
Technical Bootcamps are for end users responsible for designing, developing, and implementing cloud-based solutions on AWS. In these bootcamps, you’ll learn from experienced AWS Instructors and Solutions Architects who bring their extensive technical skills and real-world experience to each class. Each full-day bootcamp includes a mix of instructor-led presentations and hands-on lab exercises.
Partner Bootcamps are offered exclusively to members of the AWS Partner Network (APN). These bootcamps help APN Partners gain a greater understanding of how AWS solutions address customer business requirements.
AWS Certification Exam Readiness Bootcamps
