Course Description

Course Overview

The Networking in Google Cloud Platform (NGCP) course is designed to provide individuals with a comprehensive understanding of networking concepts and best practices in the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environment. This course covers various networking services and features offered by GCP, enabling participants to design, implement, and manage scalable and secure networks in the cloud.


To enroll in the NGCP course, participants should have a basic understanding of networking concepts such as IP addressing, subnetting, and routing. Familiarity with GCP fundamentals and experience in managing cloud resources will be beneficial. Participants should also have access to a GCP project or demo environment to practice the concepts covered in the course.


The NGCP course follows a blended learning approach, combining theoretical instruction, demonstrations, and hands-on labs. Participants will engage in instructor-led sessions where networking concepts and GCP services are explained. They will also have access to GCP resources and tools to gain practical experience in networking implementation. The course encourages active participation, discussions, and collaborative problem-solving to reinforce learning.
