What you'll learn in this cloud computing training:

This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for implementing, managing, and maintaining a computer systems and networking architecture in the Amazon Web Services cloud environment platform. Amazon Web Services supports an array of cloud service models, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Software-as-a-Service. The course provides students with the tools and knowledge they need to support existing cloud resources incorporated in these service models, or on-premises resources that will eventually migrate to the cloud.

Ultimately, Amazon Web Services enables businesses and other organizations to offload a great deal of computing infrastructure to the cloud. This can reduce operational costs, provide access to powerful emerging technologies, and streamline management of that infrastructure. This course prepares students to support these advantages in their day-to-day operational duties.

This course is designed for system administrators and other IT practitioners who will be implementing, supporting, and maintaining Amazon Web Services in their organizations.

This course is also designed for students who are seeking the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator—Associate Level certification and who want to prepare for the requisite exam.

Course Objectives:


In this course, you will operate Internet-accessible virtual servers hosted on the Amazon Web Services platform that adhere to best practices for monitoring, security, and availability.

You will:
  • Configure virtual servers using Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2™).
  • Configure virtual networks using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC™).
  • Manage data storage in Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Simple Storage Service (S3), and more.
  • Manage databases like Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and DynamoDB™.
  • Apply best security practices to data, software, and other AWS resources.
  • Manage identity and access in AWS.
  • Deploy and provision AWS resources using tools like CloudFormation.
  • Monitor AWS resources using Amazon CloudWatch.
  • Monitor and manage billing to optimize cost.
  • Optimize the performance of AWS components using tools like Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) and Trusted Advisor.

Prerequisites:

To ensure your success in this course, you should have experience with the features provided by Amazon Web Services. You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the AWS™ Fundamentals course.

In addition, you should also have a background in IT, preferably in systems administration. You should have a basic knowledge of common networking protocols like TCP/IP and have experience maintaining operating systems in both a Microsoft® Windows® and Linux® command-line environment. A fundamental knowledge of key information security concepts is also recommended. To obtain this level of skills and knowledge, you can take the following courses:
  • CompTIA® A+®: A Comprehensive Approach (Exams 220-901 and 220-902)
  • CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-006)
  • CompTIA® Security+® (Exam SY0-401)
  • CompTIA® Linux+™ Powered by LPI (Exams LX0-103 and LX0-104)
NOTE: To perform the course activities, students will need to provide credit card information to create some cloud accounts. Charges, if any, to these cards will be minimal, and where possible the activities suggest alternate strategies in cases where minor charges might be accrued.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Courseware (if a course has a Courseware) will be shipped to the address provided two weeks before the class starts. Make sure that the additional info field is properly and correctly filled out to avoid Courseware being lost in transit. Please also note that P.O. Box addresses are not allowed.

Instructors can view student progress and take control of their PC to provide direct assistance. Students can see the instructor's presentation as well as voice questions directly to the instructor and participate in class discussions.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

All of our classes are offered live online and any student with a computer and an internet connection can take class from their home or anywhere else they feel comfortable. For customers who are concerned about COVID-19 with regard to attending classes from one of our computer labs, please know that you can switch to attend from home up to the day before class. We just ask that you notify us so we can send them class connection information and inform the center staff that they won’t be coming in for class. 

With regard to our computer labs, each one holds a maximum of only two students per room so no student will need to be in close proximity to any large group of people. We’ve also asked the centers that host our computer labs to disinfect all keyboards/mice/surfaces, etc. after each use and requested that they provide hand sanitizer to our students. That being said, we definitely understand if a student would feel more comfortable taking class from their home.  

We purchase and ship books to students two weeks before their class date and we are charged for any computer lab booking if not cancelled within a week of the booking date, so we would not be able to fully refund a student who wants to cancel less than two weeks before class without incurring a financial loss to us that we would not be able to recover. With the attend from home option, students do hava a choice to stay home and still get their training. Students can also choose to postpone their training to a later date if they wish. 

---- 

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

You can cancel or reschedule your registration without penalty or charge provided you give notice of 10 business days (M-F) or more days before the start of my class.

If you request to cancel or reschedule your registration 10 Business Days (M-F) or less days before the class start you will be charged 100% the course fee and will not be entitled to a refund. You have one (1) opportunity to use our Make-Up policy to have those funds applied to a later class date.

You cannot change your class location ten (10) Business days (M-F) or less before the class start because Certified Staffing Solutions has shipped training materials and provisioned resources. Location changes requested prior to that timeframe are subject to availability and may incur an additional charge.

Should Certified Staffing Solutions need to cancel your class due to insufficient enrollment, or postpone it due to events beyond their control, Certified Staffing Solutions will notify you as soon as possible. In such cases, you may reschedule to a future class date at no additional charge or receive a refund for any money on account relating to that registration.

Travel arrangements and costs are the sole responsibility of the student. Certified Staffing Solutions suggests obtaining refundable reservations. Certified Staffing Solutions classes are confirmed approximately 14 days before the start of the class. We cannot guarantee class commitments before that window of time. Certified Staffing Solutions will not be responsible for any cancellation costs incurred, including but not limited to, airline/mass transit tickets, hotel reservations and so on.
