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. A background in networking will prove to be very useful but is not necessarily 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, notecards, guides, and also interactive quizzes.
