Test Your Cloud Knowledge on AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform

Cloud skills are in demand |

In today’s digital era, employers are constantly seeking skilled professionals with working knowledge of AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. According to the 2019 Trends in Cloud Transformation report by 451 Research:

Business and IT transformations require new cloud- and data-centric skills sets, but enterprises are having difficulty finding and retaining the required expertise.

While certifications are important, they don’t always give you the hands-on knowledge or experience that employers require. Understanding your cloud knowledge is a challenge, but there is now a way to know if your skills are up-to-date with the latest technology.

Understand where your skills stand

If you work in the IT industry — whether you are a developer, engineer, architect, data scientist, or any other IT role — you know that staying up to date is always a challenge.

Today, we’re pleased to announce a new tool that allows you to test your cloud knowledge.

Whether you use AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, or a combination of all three, our Cloud Knowledge Evaluation will test your current skills to reveal your strengths and weaknesses. By selecting the “overall cloud readiness,” you will be asked general questions about the benefits of the cloud. This general assessment was designed for people who are familiar with cloud technologies, but not with a specific vendor.

Cloud Knowledge Evaluation

Take the Cloud Knowledge Evaluation

To understand where your technology skills stand, you don’t need a paid Cloud Academy account. Simply go to our Cloud Knowledge Evaluation, and follow our three easy steps:

1. Choose your platform.
2. Take the 20-question evaluation.
3. Receive your initial skill profile in your inbox.

The Cloud Knowledge Evaluation was built to let organizations answer the question, “Is my team ready for this cloud project?” Today, we’re pleased to release our new tool to the public.

How the score is calculated

The system estimates your knowledge level based on the difficulty of the questions and the number of correct answers. Each question tests a specific skill, and the difficulty changes automatically based on your answer to challenge you among different tests. The system also estimates your knowledge of correlated skills. For instance, if you are tested on Amazon S3, the system infers your knowledge on storage. When you are tested on other services in the storage area (e.g., Amazon Glacier), the system tunes the estimated score on storage over time.

At the end of the assessment, you will see your score update for each category and an updated leaderboard. The data-driven results provide high-level insights that can help tailor your professional development strategy. 

Want to improve your skills?

The best way to improve your skills is to enroll in a comprehensive learning path that includes in-depth lectures, practice exams, and hands-on labs to test your problem-solving skills in a real-cloud environment. Cloud Academy has hundreds of quizzes and exams on our platform, and we offer a free trial to improve your skills.
