Power Apps hands-on for basic canvas app. model driven app , CDS & power automate

Hello ,

Requesting for the Power Apps hands-on for basic canvas app. model driven app , CDS & power automate, have seen other materials but seeing they have more than basic concepts covered & taking the whole day . 


So , i kindly request to provide any hands-on lab materials taking max-max : 4-5 hours for  the complete session(our session time) , with basic app covering basic concepts.


Also to add on this , in few of the hands-on labs , they have importing steps for solutions for CDS/model driven app , also please explain the need for importing solutions? why do we use solutions located in the power apps below data, tables. etc. 


Kindly look into these 2 please , needed it really urgent , if needed to make any modifications too & to prepare on that basis for workshop. Thanks in advance.
