Preparing for this class...

The required pre-class exercises help ensure the best training experience. It creates your training environment and includes a series of three challenges to assess your skills. The pre-class will be available upon purchase of the course and can be completed by following the instructions outlined prior to the start of the live training.

If you find the pre-class too difficult, we highly recommend gaining additional practice before enrollment. Attend a CSA CCSK Plus training class and spend a few months working hands-on in cloud; or take additional platform training offered by your cloud provider or a third party. Completing the CCSK alone will not guarantee you have the skills for this training course.

Students should be comfortable:

  • connecting to and working with remote Linux systems via SSH.
  • navigating with Amazon Web Services console without step-by-step screenshots.
  • with basic Python skills to complete all automation labs (code snippets will be provided).
