Course Overview

Through live labs and hands-on exercises, you’ll build upon your existing knowledge of systems administration, cloud computing, and networking protocols such as TCP/IP or HTTP. This course focuses on common industry techniques and best practices used by AWS system administrators to help you utilize standard AWS infrastructure features such as Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), and AWS Auto Scaling from the command line.

This training helps prepare you for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Associate-level exam, alongside real-world experience, studying and more.
