About the course

Google Cloud Platform is one of the fastest-growing cloud service platforms offered today that lets you run your applications and data workflows at Google-sized scale. With Google-sized scale comes the responsibility of managing a Google-sized network.

The Google Cloud Certified Professional Network Engineer certification will test your ability to implement and manage network architectures in Google Cloud Platform.

This course is the first of a four-course track to prepare you for the role of a GCP Network Engineer. The Network Concepts course covers the fundamentals of networking on GCP, which will act as a foundation for more advanced teachings as we move along this track.
