What You’ll Learn
IT 7100
Cloud Computing (Cloud+)

The IT-7100 Cloud Computing program is recommended for experienced IT professionals looking to expand their role, gain earning power and demonstrate proficiency in cloud computing. As technology continues to evolve, and businesses explore new methods of doing things, it is critical that IT professionals keep pace with this evolution. Cloud computing is not new, but its evolution has accelerated in the last 10 years.

The CompTIA Cloud+ certification is a vendor-neutral, performance-based certification that validates the skills and knowledge required of IT practitioners working in cloud computing environments. Competencies include cloud infrastructure and cloud models, virtualization, infrastructure management, security and resource management.

Cloud computing is creating new opportunities, both for businesses and people interested in working in the field of computer sciences. Cloud computing allows businesses to have the flexibility and efficiency to meet new and growing demands. It provides the infrastructure, software and platforms necessary for success in today’s business landscape, no matter where they’re needed. However, as the presence of cloud computing becomes more widespread, the demand for professionals who can manage these networks properly is also becoming more pronounced.

More and more employers are in search of cloud talents who can fill this role. In many cases, there is a shortage of specialized, knowledgeable practitioners that are not only able to help an organization migrate effectively to the cloud but also mitigate the risks inherent to such a move. This is where certifications become key.

The job-ready candidate needs to be able to handle a range of technical tasks, but also must deal with co-workers, clients, customers and other human relations issues. Because Customer Service is a priority in situations where any interaction occurs, students will learn the fundamentals of customer service by completing a module that has been aligned with standards set forth by the Professional Association for Customer Engagement (PACE). This training is designed to be transferable to any position, across virtually any industry. Students that successfully complete this course will achieve a Customer Service Certified (CSC) credential.

Students are also provided training that covers Microsoft Word and Excel. These courses provide students with strong word processing and spreadsheet skills that are valuable to business and IT professionals across all industries. Additionally, according to Burning Glass data, Microsoft Word and Excel are in the top 5 Baseline Skills required by employers for all IT candidates.
