Your best bet is to use Eventgen data. A lot of TA's out there, such as Cisco ASA, Blue Coat Proxy and Windows have a "samples" directory and an eventgen.conf file that Eventgen can use to create sample data for your environment. As you add more eventgen sources into ES, the more you'll light up the dashboards and see the functionality.

That being said, ES has quite a different knowledge requirement to Splunk Core, so this shouldn't be a replacement for undertaking ES training.

Absolutely - try out the Event Generator app.

It should generate some data to light up ES to learn on it.

Also, check out the BOTS (Boss of the SOC) v1 competition dataset, as well.
