Why study this course

This two-day instructor-led course gives participants a broad study of networking options on Google Cloud.

This course uses lectures, demos, and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies, including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, and firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT. You’ll also learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.

On successful completion of this course, DDLS will issue you a digital badge that you can share on your social media channels and use as part of your wider applicable certification and training transcript.
