This is a Hands-on Lab Challenge!


In this lab challenge, your AWS EC2 skills are put to the test. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of AWS EC2 and other AWS tools relevant to working with EC2. The Lab Challenge simulates building a basic solution in a real-world scenario.

With this lab challenge, we are pushing you to the next level by making this lab resemble a production environment as much as possible. Lab Challenges do not include full and complete instructions to help you along the way. This means you have to demonstrate your knowledge to the best of your abilities. As in a real-world scenario, you should feel free to use the internet to answer any questions you have. You can check the status of your work by running checks that inspect the state of your Lab environment.

What will be assessed:

  • AWS EC2 core concepts
  • AWS Management Console proficiency

Intended Audience

  • AWS engineers
  • Candidates for any AWS associate-level certification


  • Basic knowledge of AWS EC2 and AWS tools related to it
  • Basic familiarity with the AWS Management Console and how to navigate it
