What You’ll Learn
IT 7000
Cloud Technology Professional

The IT-7000 Cloud Technology Professional program is recommended for experienced IT professionals looking to expand in their role, gain more earning power and demonstrate proficiency in cloud computing. As technology continues to evolve, and businesses explore new methods of doing things, it’s critical that IT professionals keep pace with this evolution.

The CompTIA Cloud+ and AWS certifications are two of the most in-demand certifications to hold a career in the cloud domain. The combination of these certifications set IT professionals apart in the field and enable higher earning power.

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification proves you can design and implement a distributed architectural solution based on the needs of the end­ user. You’ll learn about the most important AWS storage, computing, networking, security, database and application services and how to use them.

This program contains two courses related to Amazon Web Services. The first is AWS Essentials, designed as an introduction to the basics of the AWS platform. The Essentials course is an overview of the AWS cloud and is independent of any specific technical roles. The second course is far more comprehensive and teaches you to design resilient, high-performing, secure and cost-optimized architectures.

This program is enhanced by the comprehensive training related to Cloud computing through the CompTIA Cloud+ course. Because Cloud+ certification is vendor-neutral, this course concentrates on concepts and operations inclusive of all cloud computing environments. Within this program, the Cloud+ course lays a great foundation for pursuing an advanced specialist role such as a Cloud Solutions Architect.

Customer Service is a priority in situations where any interaction occurs, you’ll learn the fundamentals of customer service by completing a module through the Professional Association for Customer Engagement (PACE). This training is designed to be transferrable to any position, across virtually any industry. You’ll earn a Customer Service Certified (CSC) credential after completing this course.

Upon completion, MedCerts will sponsor the cost of the Cloud+ and the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Associate.
