Why get certified, anyway?

You’ll hear a lot of talk about certs, courses, and exams, but what’s a good way to get some focus on the topic? Let us help.

Getting certified shows that you have some of the most in-demand and profitable skills in the industry, though there are countless certifications to choose from. Cloud providers — such as AWS and Azure — offer foundational certifications, which are designed to validate a candidate’s overall understanding. Foundational cloud certifications for beginners include AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification and Microsoft Azure Fundamentals.

To help you prepare for the exams, Cloud Academy offers vendor-neutral learning paths that deliver the theory, technical knowledge, and hands-on practice to get certified to operate across any cloud ecosystem. 


Cloud Academy for enterprise

We built Cloud Academy around the needs of our Fortune 100 clients. From demonstrable security to fast, flexible deployments of thousands of seats, we provide total control and predictability in up-leveling your organization’s skills and enabling you to deliver on challenging technical projects.

Cloud Academy is the leading digital skills development platform that enables every enterprise to become a tech company through guided Learning Paths, Hands-on Labs, and Skill Assessment. Cloud Academy delivers role-specific training on leading clouds (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform), essential methodologies needed to operate on and between clouds (DevOps, security, containers), and capabilities that are unlocked by the cloud (big data, machine learning).

Companies like Turner, Cognizant, SAS, and ThermoFisher customize Cloud Academy to contextualize learning and leverage the platform to assign, manage, and measure cloud enablement at scale.

*Complimentary access starts Friday, February 7 at 12:00 a.m. PST and ends Sunday, February 9 at 11:59 p.m. PST. This promotion cannot be combined with any other promotions or applied in any way to existing personal or enterprise licenses.
