It is recommended to have taken at least one associate-level AWS certification
Basics of networking are a nice-to-have although we explain them too in the course


The AWS Certified Networking Specialty Exam ANS-C01 is one of the most challenging certification exams you can take from Amazon. Passing it tells employers in no uncertain terms that your knowledge of AWS networking is wide and deep. But, even experienced technologists need to prepare heavily for this exam. This course sets you up for success by covering all of the AWS networking topics on the exam and how they fit together.Best-selling Udemy instructors Stéphane Maarek and AWS Networking expert Chetan Agrawal have teamed up to deliver the most comprehensive and hands-on prep course we’ve seen. This course combines Stéphane’s depth on AWS with Chetan’s experience in AWS Networking. Chetan and Stéphane took and passed the exam themselves on the first try.The world of networking on AWS includes in-depth knowledge about technologies and services. Here are some of the concepts we will cover:Learn networking fundamentals with Amazon VPC Learn advanced features of VPCUnderstand DNS and DHCP options on VPCLearn Networking Performance and OptimizationsConfigure VPC Peering, VPC Gateway & Interface EndpointsLearn Hybrid Networking (combining networking of on-premises and AWS) in depth. In-depth configuration of Site-to-Site VPN, AWS Client VPN, and Direct ConnectNetworking aspects of AWS Elastic Load Balancers and AWS CloudFrontAdvanced DNS configurations with Route 53You’ll have many opportunities to reinforce your learning with hands-on exercises throughout the course. We’ll also arm you with some valuable test-taking tips and strategies along the way.AWS Networking is an advanced certification, and it’s best tackled by students who have already obtained associate-level certification in AWS and have some real-world industry experience. This exam is not intended for AWS beginners.You want to go into the AWS Certified Networking Specialty Exam confidently, which is what this course delivers. Hit the enroll button, and we’re excited to see you in the course… and ultimately to see you get your certification!———————————InstructorMy name is Stephane Maarek, and I’ll be your instructor in this course. I teach about AWS certifications, always focusing on helping my students improve their professional proficiencies in AWS. I am also the author of some of the most highly-rated & best-selling courses on AWS Lambda, AWS CloudFormation & AWS EC2.Throughout my career in designing and delivering these certifications and courses, I have already taught 1,000,000+ students and gotten 350,000+ reviews!I’m delighted to welcome Chetan Agrawal as my co-instructor for this course!Chetan has been passionate about AWS Networking. He himself learned Networking in the cloud practically during his 6+ years of professional career as a Cloud and DevOps architect. Cloud platforms provide an opportunity to try and experiment with networking configurations quickly; hence, wherever possible, these courses include supporting hands-on exercises/demos that you can implement. This helps retain knowledge and build skills for a lifetime.With AWS becoming more than a buzzword, I’ve decided it’s time for students to learn how to properly be an AWS Advanced Networking Specialist.
