Overview

On this accelerated AWS Certified Security - Specialty course, you'll learn how to use AWS cloud-based data solutions to protect and secure your business.

In just 4 days, you'll identify common tools and technologies you can use to design and implement data security solutions.

You'll also gain an understanding of:

  • Specialised data classification, data encryption and secure internet protocols
  • AWS security services and features of services to provide a secure production environment
  • The ability to make tradeoff decisions with regard to cost, security, and deployment complexity given a set of application requirements

If you're a security engineer, security architect or someone who's responsible for designing and implementing information security and have experience working with the AWS platform, this course is ideal for you.

This accelerated course provides training and knowledge equivalent to AWS's Security Engineering on AWS, Advanced Architecting on AWS and AWS Security Fundamentals courses.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 102779 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"I had failed the AWS Solution Architect Associate exam multiple times before coming to Firebrand Training. The OIL course was great and the Instructor was very clear and helpful. I took the exam again straight after finishing the course and PASSED! I was a lot more confident in the exam because I now understood all of the concepts being presented in the questions."
Sam Phillips, Tecflair. (1/3/2021 (Monday) to 4/3/2021 (Thursday))

"The online training experience worked well, and I felt that I received the same level of training that I would have if I was in the classroom.. although its always useful to be there in person and have the social element, the convenience compensated for that. The main thing for me was the quality of the delivery was still top notch. Thanks very much!"
Stephen Cochrane. (8/1/2021 (Friday) to 10/1/2021 (Sunday))
