Challenge Labs - 365 Days All Access Pass
The All Access Pass is a 365-day subscription that includes access to 500+ hands-on labs related to multiple platforms and technologies, including Microsoft Azure, PowerShell, Linux, Cybersecurity, and AWS.
Challenge labs are goal oriented, short-duration, scenario-based hands-on exercises. Ideal for cloud technologies, they provide skills development and assessments across multiple platforms and technologies. They are useful before, during and/or after training.
- Before – As an assessment tool to determine what course someone may need to take.
- During – As a way to provide safe practice opportunities during a course.
- After – A continuing education tool that allows safe practice opportunities.
Challenge Labs are designed to extend and expand your learning experience with hands-on, scenario-based exercises. Challenge Labs are different from traditional labs, they provide you with high level guidance and requirements as opposed to detailed step-by-step instructions and designed specifically to provoke thought.
New challenge labs are continually being released, and you will gain automatic access to them for the duration of your subscription.
- IT Professionals who are looking to keep up to date on ever changing features and functionality in cloud platforms
