Google Cloud Architect Exam Bootcamp

What is a Google Cloud Architect Exam Bootcamp?

Our GCP Cloud Architect Exam Bootcamp is five days of intensive, hands-on, instructor-led training. The instructor will alternate between presenting material and guiding attendees through hands-on, real-world exercises. Attendees will be provided access to a complete series of GCP based cloud labs. Attendees will focus on preparing to take the GCP Cloud Architect Exam successfully through practice exams, Case Study discussions and live exercises.

The goal of our GCP Cloud Architect Exam Bootcamp is to equip students with a foundation-level knowledge of Google Cloud Platform to pass the exam.  The primary focus of the class is core concepts and topics found on the GCP Cloud Architect written exam.

Our Written Exam Bootcamp is for anyone who is beginning their GCP Cloud Architect certification journey, but already has at least basic knowledge of cloud computing. Though prior certification is not required, we strongly recommend at least 1 year of hands-on experience prior to attempting a GCP Cloud Architect Exam Bootcamp.

To prepare for this course, we recommend that you review our Google Cloud Platform self-paced materials, which are available individually or in our All Access Pass.



This Bootcamp is structured to run 10 hours per day, with a one-hour lunch break. Each day will be a combination of lectures, instructor-led demonstrations, Q&A sessions, hands-on exercises, and frequent quizzes. Students will also have full access to their lab equipment throughout the evening to continue practicing on their own or as groups.

Each student will be equipped with his or her own Qwiklabs and GCP account. Each day, instructor lectures will be followed by applicable technology-focused labs. Upon completion of this class, the student will have a solid foundation of knowledge and a keen understanding of what topics to focus on for the remainder of their studies.

Our lectures are dynamic and engaging, with a digital whiteboard system, and a significant amount of class time spent live on Google Cloud command line interface (gcloud) working with a full cloud stack.

Our Bootcamp students share their stories...

This will open your eyes to the way you have to be prepared. Knowing the technology is one thing, but knowing different ways to resolve issues with the technologies and why is another! I would strongly recommend that every CCIE candidate take this class!  
Vernado Deal - CCNP and CCNA 3x (Voice, RS, Security)
Dave Smith exceeded my expectations concerning his depth of knowledge of the material covered. I especially appreciated his incorporation of first-hand experience and historical context of the technologies. Relevant anecdotes help to solidify "why" something does what it does, rather than just memorizing. His enthusiasm and passion for networking really do help keep you focused on and listening to everything he says.
