Course Description

Course Overview

The Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals for AWS Professionals (GCP-FAP) course is designed to provide AWS professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This course focuses on highlighting the similarities and differences between AWS and GCP services, enabling AWS professionals to leverage their existing knowledge to effectively work with GCP.


To enroll in the GCP-FAP course, participants should have a solid understanding of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its core services. Familiarity with cloud computing concepts, networking, and storage in AWS is essential. Prior experience with deploying and managing applications on AWS will enhance the learning experience in comparing and contrasting with GCP services.


The GCP-FAP course employs a combination of theoretical instruction, demonstrations, and hands-on labs. Participants will engage in instructor-led sessions where AWS and GCP services are compared and contrasted. They will explore GCP services and tools through practical exercises. The course encourages active participation, discussions, and collaborative problem-solving to reinforce learning and facilitate knowledge transfer from AWS to GCP.
