Course Description

The Cloud Credential Council (CCC) Cloud Technology Associate+™ certification enables professionals to operate effectively in a Cloud environment, demonstrating an understanding of the key concepts and relevant terminology. It works as the ideal foundation for those interested in advancing their careers with professional-level certifications.

Cloud computing has become one of the most important buzzwords in our fast-paced world. Its benefits have been recognized by a varied set of professionals and organizations, from reduced costs to collaboration efficiency and scalability. Microsoft, Google, and Adobe are only a few of the major companies using it to great effect.

Cloud’s difference in relationship to traditional IT has led to a significant effort by organizations to upskill, re-skill and re-train so as to not get lost in their process of digital transformation. While there is no secret formula for succeeding in the cloud, there is one thing organizations recognize as essential: hiring the right specialists.

The industry-recognized CCC Cloud Technology Associate certification ensures you obtain the basic skill set and knowledge of Cloud and virtualization needed to make an impact.
