AWS Advanced Networking Specialty (LA)

via A Cloud Guru


Welcome to the AWS Advanced Networking Specialty Certification course. This course is designed to give you hands-on practice, along with practice exams, and study tools needed for the exam. Although AWS no longer requires an Associate-level certification as a prerequisite to this exam, we recommend that you achieve the Associate-level certification prior to attempting the Advanced Networking Specialty exam. A background in networking will prove to be very useful but is not necessarily required. In the course, we start by building a foundational understanding of networking concepts. We build on those foundational concepts by focusing on the design and implementation of highly-available and fault-tolerant network infrastructures including hybrid infrastructure, VPN, and Direct Connect. These are required to support specific user and application requirements while focusing on advanced security concepts and best practices. To reinforce your learning, this course includes lessons, hands-on labs, walkthroughs, guides, quizzes, and practice exams.Please connect with us at in the #aws channel if you have questions or feedback.
