Details

This course has been developed to include everything you will need to pass the AWS Networking - Specialty exam. You are, however, expected to have an AWS associate-level certification and a background in networking will prove to be very useful, but not neccesarily required. In this course, you will build from fundamental networking concepts to deploying your own infrastructure with a heavy focus on networking best practices. You will learn advanced security concepts as well as how to design highly-available fault-tolerant hybrid infrastructures that allow secure and reliable communication between AWS and your on-premises infrastructure. This course includes lessons, hands-on labs, walkthroughs, quizzes, notecards, guides and also interactive quizzes.
