A very good introductory course - the access to the labs is particularly helpful. Definitely recommend taking the time to work through the optional lab elements to re-enforce the course content/ concepts / learnings.

It's a great course that covers the fundaments of AWS, like compute (EC2, Lambda), networking (VPC), storage (S3, EBS, EFS), databases (RDS, DynamoDB), and more (IAM, CloudWatch, etc.). Would highly recommend!
