In this lab, you will be assessing your ability to troubleshoot AWS networking and security issues in a production-like environment. Putting your skills to the test, you will need to repair the environment by fixing an issue and ensuring you do not disrupt any of the properly functioning aspects of the environment.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied situation, leaving behind multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
