Skill Assessment

The fastest path to aligning cloud skills to your vision starts with data.

Profile cloud skills across your organization

Skill Profiles quantify and trend aptitude by platform, domain, and topic across your entire organization. Understand who has what it takes to tackle your next cloud initiative through real-time comparisons between individuals, teams, or the company as a whole. Identify skill gaps, assign fit-for-purpose Training Plans, and monitor the effectiveness of training using skill-based KPIs. Skill Profiles take the guesswork out of knowing where your teams stand.

Before Skill Profiles, our training KPIs focused on the quantity of training consumed. Training effort matters, but it’s most important to measure the continuous results—the ongoing acquisition of skills that will make us stand out as an organization in cloud.

In study mode, quizzes are untimed, answers are provided, and users receive explanations with links to further documentation. In test mode, quizzes are timed and responses impact Skill Profile scores.

Put your teams real-world cloud skills to the test

Leverage certification practice exams

Cloud Academy’s pre-built certification practice exams are simply the best way to prepare for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform certification tests. Understand when individuals are ready to sit for the test — or use our certification content as a template to build your own enterprise certification program.

Certify knowledge with exams

Create custom skill assessments

With 16k+ questions covering AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, DevOps, and other methodologies and tools, Cloud Academy offers the largest and most relevant collection of cloud assessment content available. Using Content Engine™, you can create exams specific to your technology stack, add your own questions, and even set success parameters.

Starting from Cloud Academy exam templates, we created our own highly specific exams that not only address our contractual needs with AWS, but also ensure that our workforce is certified on our internal policies and processes. We essentially built a custom certification program using Cloud Academy and it has resulted in significant increases in AWS adoption among our clientele.œœ
