When opening an AWS account (opens in new tab) simply select a normal/standard account with the 'Basic' (zero cost) support level. You can upgrade to a paid support plan at any time. However, for the purpose of our training, it should not be necessary.
See Amazon's pricing (opens in new tab) to for the different support levels.
The Free Tier rebates will be applied by AWS automatically to any qualifying resources you have used
Note: the "Free Tier" rebate is not related to the support plans.
Hint: you may be asked about this on the exam.
