One option to consider is qwikLABS … they have live hands-on labs that are relatively inexpensive and cover each of the AWS services. The labs range from free to $15 and each last about an hour. As far as incurring cost on the AWS free tier after leaving instances running for a year, there is some irony in that situation. One of the most important lessons of engineering in the cloud is ephemeral workloads, or treating your servers like cattle versus pets.
