Hello, and welcome to this course on Billing, Pricing, and Support in AWS, where we’re here to help you on your journey to prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification.

Before we get started, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Danny Jessee, and I am one of the trainers here at Cloud Academy, specializing in AWS – Amazon Web Services – and AWS certifications. In this course, the AWS team will be presenting a series of lectures that introduce some Billing, Pricing, and Support resources currently available in AWS that may be covered on the exam. Feel free to contact me with any questions using the details shown on the screen, or you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our Cloud experts will reply to your question.

This course has been specifically curated to help you pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam and is ideal for anyone who is looking to learn more about the various Billing, Pricing, and Support resources in AWS in preparation for the exam.
