AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner

Welcome to the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Course.

Are you a business professional, accountant, sales person, or some other type of non-technical person that works in the tech industry?  Have you always wanted to know what cloud computing is, how it works, and what it's used for - without all the technical jargon?  If you answered YES, then the Certified Cloud Practitioner course and exam are perfect for you.  

As the cloud computing industry continues to grow, understanding it's concepts, purpose, and use cases will become an increasingly valuable skill among non I.T. individuals and employees.  What that in mind, AWS created an exam that covers the very basics of their cloud computing platform, and that tests you on basic AWS services, benefits, concepts, and use cases.  All without having to know detailed technical terms, concepts, and know-how.  

For all those who want to learn these basics, this course has been designed with two main objectives in mind:  (1) Prepare you to pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, and (2) learn the foundations of cloud computing and AWS, including its primary services, benefits, and use cases. 

This course is NOT designed to teach you how to build and run applications on AWS.  This course is all about conceptual understanding. If you are looking for an introduction to AWS course from a hands-on/cloud engineering perspective, please see our AWS Essentials course.

Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer (Course Under Development)

A note, from me the course author, to you the student.

For the last few days I’ve been at Google Next 2018. I’ve met a lot of students and several future students. One of the things that I noticed was the Google created the Google Cloud Certified- Associate Cloud Engineer exam due to the demand. Talking with everyone at the booth made it clear that this is something you all are eager to have. So that’s why we’ve decided to do a rolling release of this course. It’s not 100% complete. However, it’s going to get you started. And perhaps the best part is that it’s still early enough in the process that your feedback can really help shape the upcoming lessons!

I hope you all enjoy taking this course as much as I’m enjoying creating it.


This course is designed to not only help you pass the Google Cloud Certified- Associate Cloud Engineer exam, but also to learn the real-world skills need to be a cloud engineer. This course loosely follows the domain objectives outlined in the certification info. However, instead of just walking you through each bullet point and showing how that particular item works, without any context, we’ve chosen to use a scenario.

In this scenario, you’ve been hired by a startup called Find Seller. They're working on an app that allows users to post a picture of an item and tag it as something they want to buy or sell. They’re having trouble getting funded because currently all of their technology resides on the developers laptops. And they don’t have any idea how to move to the cloud. That’s where you and I enter the scenario. You’ve been hired as a junior cloud operations engineer, and I’ll be working as a senior cloud engineer. I’ll be mentoring you as we’re assigned tasks from our boss. And we’ll go through the process of deploying and maintaining the application.

Here are some of the areas of focus:

  • Set up a cloud solution environment?
  • Plan and configure a cloud solution?
  • Deploy and implement a cloud solution?
  • Ensure successful operation of a cloud solution?
  • Configure access and security?

By the end of this course you should be ready to pass the Google Cloud Certified- Associate Cloud Engineer Exam.
