About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

Demonstrate your Infrastructure as Code provisioning and management skills using Terraform in this hands-on lab assessment.

This hands-on lab assessment will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the lab assessment.

You will be presented with a set of tasks organized into two levels of difficulty: Beginner (1) and Intermediate (2).

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