This CompTIA Cloud+ Certification training program is perfect for the IT professional looking to expand their role, gain earning power, and demonstrate proficiency in cloud computing. While not new, Cloud computing's evolution has accelerated in the last 10 years.
Cloud technology is continuing to grow. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure are two cloud providers and platforms that are dominating the cloud space, but they are not alone. Other cloud platforms include Google Cloud, IBM Bluemix and Alibaba and many more. For IT professionals currently working within one of these specific platforms and who plan to for an indefinite amount of time, it may be in their best interest to pursue vendor-specific training related to a single cloud environment. For those relatively new to cloud technologies or looking to obtain certification to gain access to more opportunities, Cloud+ is a great starting point.
We believe everyone should have access to higher education. With the option to pay in full, break down payments or utilize government grant funding, we help expand that access.

“As an experienced healthcare professional making a transition into the IT field, I have been extremely pleased with the support that MedCerts has given me from the time that I started taking their courses. Being a married professional with a child, my life is extremely busy, and the advantages that their online course offers are substantial. I would, in particular, like to acknowledge the tremendous support that I have received (and continue to receive) from the IT academic advisor. The team has all worked diligently, and gone above and beyond the call of duty, to resolve my concerns, and assist me with the completion of my IT program. I would heartily recommend MedCerts to anyone who is thinking about changing their current field, or acquiring a new skill set, while they are currently employed.”
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.
