Amazon Web Services (AWS) expanded its AWS Skill Builder training service with premium subscriptions for people and organizations wanting to expand their cloud services expertise

Amazon Web Services Skill Builder, a web-based learning facility with numerous free cloud technology courses, now features paid subscription services. According to Amazon, AWS Skill Builder learning services begin at $29 every month.

What content will be offered to Amazon Skill Builder subscribers?

Subscriptions to AWS Skill Builder provide certified companies and communities with information that gives them access to developer-specific learning resources. In addition to almost 600 free workshops, a variety of new learning experiences are offered to AWS subscribers.

Individual service offerings include three standardized test prep classes, three AWS Certified solutions and over one hundred AWS Building Company Labs. Individual policy content and daily updates of more than 140 complexities as part of AWS Jam events are included in monthly team subscriptions.

Key takeaways

It’s important to note that over the years, each of the big three cloud industries — Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform — launched a variety of training programs in an attempt to attract new developers and businesses to join their firms. Although these three offer many subscription programs, the courses have mostly been free, as there is a shift toward cloud businesses.
