Our AWS Virtual Classroom Trainng offers live classes with instructors who teach you in-demand cloud skills and best practices using a mix of presentations, discussion, and hands-on labs. Ask questions, work through solutions in person, and get feedback from AWS-accredited instructors with deep technical knowledge.
During most of our AWS Courses students will work independently on servers located offsite using a variety of remote access technologies. Training is a mixture of concepts, labs and how to lectures and the day is very full. Your instructor may give you the option of working through labs in your own time (like after hours, or during a break) in order to add as much as possible to the course content.
Your instructor should cover what you need during the class. Prerequisite knowledge and skills are also listed in each course’s data sheet should always be considered. Useful, but not required short list here:
Note: You should make your instructor aware of any impairments before class begins on the first day (like a corporate network block for remote access). If you need other assistance, please contact the training center prior to attending the class.
Most of our classes run from Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm. However, there may be some exceptions depending on location or extended hours for fast track courses. Please check the class details in your confirmation email or our website.
The student will require Internet connection, a computer (either PC or Mac) running a supported browser as well as a Microsoft RDP client, and an audio connection for the duration of the class. You will be accessing ZOOM or WebEx to view the slides using your web browser, and you will be performing the class labs using an RDP connection. Most current browsers are supported except for Firefox 64-bit. Class setup information includes a link to enable the student to download the current version of the RDP client. The RDP client is required to access to remote lab equipment. The RDP client is included in all versions of Windows with the file name mstsc.exe. Once you have the RDP Client installed, you will need to test your connectivity. For this test, you will need to open the client and connect to “vdc-us04-a.vmeduc.com” or “vdc-us24-a.vmeduc.com”. Try to connect to the server using the name “vmeduc\student”, you will not be able to authenticate, but if you are prompted for a password you have successfully tested the RDP connection. If you cannot connect to the RDP server you will have to ask your security department to open port 3389, disconnect from your corporate VPN or find another place from which to attend the class. Please contact us if you need help with the RDP connection, as we will not have time to troubleshoot connectivity problems after class starts.
