About HashiCorp Consul

Consul is the most downloaded tool from HashiCorp and the most widely adopted service mesh tool on AWS, so naturally, those deploying and managing it need to understand how it all works.

This course will prepare you for HashiCorp Consul Associate certification to prove your expertise to colleagues and employers!

This course is designed with two main objectives: to teach the basics of HashiCorp Consul and arm students with the knowledge to pass the Consul Associate exam.

The course covers a wealth of Consul topics to get even the most novice person up to speed with the Consul. And hey, if you’re already working with Consul, you might also learn some stuff.

  • Looking for information on Consul architecture, security, and protocols used? It’s in here.
  • Struggling to understand how to write prepared queries? I’ve got that, too.
  • Were you writing a Consul agent configuration file and had problems? Yeah, I talk about that as well.

This course includes almost 70 lectures, hands-on labs, and test questions for each lecture. It also includes access to the slides, Mind Maps of each objective, lab guides to follow along, and tons of external links. There is even a final practice exam that includes exam-like questions to test your knowledge.

If you’re looking for a course to teach you how to deploy and manage a Consul environment, or if you’re looking to pass the HashiCorp Certified: Consul Associate, you’re in the right place.
