LP Introduction: AWS Management & Governance
AWS Management & Governance Introduction

This brief course introduces the AWS Management & Governance learning path, which covers all of the content within the Cloud Academy library that's relates to the services within the 'Management & Governance' category of the AWS Management Console



Maintaining management and governance within the cloud is just as important as maintaining it within your own data center. Almost all organizations are required to meet specific regulations and specifications from both an internal and external perspective, which affect their it solutions, and as such, these must be monitored and implemented effectively. As AWS provides a number of tools and services to help you enable provision and operate your AWS environment, I have built this learning path to contain all of our content within our library that relates to the services listed within the management and governance category of the AWS management console. It contains our on-demand courses and hands-on labs, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge in this specific area. 

My name is Stuart Scott and I'm the AWS content director here at Cloud Academy. Feel free to connect with me to ask me any questions using the details shown on the screen. Alternatively, you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to, where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question. 

The content set out in this learning path is ideal for those who may be a system administrator or those who are responsible for operating your environment with speed and governance and deploying resources, which meet the specifications of your internal policies. Additionally, it will also benefit anyone who is looking to increase their knowledge of the services discussed in preparation for an AWS certification.
