Google Cloud Primer

This course introduces the students to general Cloud concepts and capabilities as well the products and services provided by Google Cloud.  At the end of the course, the attendees will be able to identify the appropriate Google Cloud service(s) required for their cloud-based solutions.   

Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals

This course introduces the students to the Google Cloud products and services as well as their integration in the context of user cloud-based solutions.  At the end of the course, the attendees will be able to make informed technical decisions and select the most appropriate Google Cloud service(s) required for their enterprise-grade cloud-based solutions.

Getting Started with Google Kubernetes Engine

During this intensive training, the attendees will explore the architecture and core components of Kubernetes and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).  The students will learn how to build and deploy containerized applications on GKE using gcloud and kubectl command-line tools.

This course will help participants interested in the GCP Associate Cloud Engineer Certification to orient themselves on the required topics and give them practical knowledge to start off on that learning path.
