Set up a Google Cloud environment, including billing accounts, projects, tools, access, and security.
Plan, configure, implement, deploy, monitor, and manage solutions in the Google Cloud.
Get familiar with using the Google Cloud through both the console and the command-line.
Pass the Google Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam.
Build a strong foundation for other GCP certification exams.

Google Cloud is growing quickly as companies increasingly adopt multi-cloud strategies. It was once again named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Infrastructure as a Service Magic Quadrant, and demand for people with Google Cloud skills is running high. To meet this demand and help organizations identify knowledgeable talent, Google has created their Associate Cloud Engineer certification.

This course is targeted at efficiently teaching the skills required by the ACE certification—namely deploying applications, monitoring operations, and managing enterprise solutions. It also helps students demonstrate those skills through certification. The certification requires candidates be able to use both the GCP console and the command-line to perform many common platform-based tasks, but this course does not require students to already have experience with either, going in.

This course is also designed to give students the solid foundation of GCP capability that they will need to later build toward the Google Certified Professional Cloud Architect (PCA) certification–which was recently named as 2019’s top-paying IT certification.

This course will prepare you to:

  • Set-up and configure Google Cloud accounts using best practices.
  • Use GCP services like Cloud Storage, Compute Engine, and Kubernetes Engine in your everyday work.
  • Pass the GCP Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam.

No coding experience is required and code used for labs is provided.

These questions are similar to ones you might find on the ACE exam, but only on topics covered thus far in the course.

Please do this quiz before watching the next lecture!

Also, note that some of these questions have been simplified from "Choose 2" questions into "Choose 1" questions.  This is because, unlike Google's ACE certification exam, Udemy's quiz system only supports questions with one correct response.

Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
