As cloud computing and networking takes over more and more functions that were traditionally handled by local servers, you may find that it is getting more difficult to find qualified personnel who are conversant with the new technology. That is why CompTIA has updated its industry-leading certification with the Cloud+ certification.
If you have been considering enrolling members of your workforce in this program but have been reluctant because you are not sure if it will cover any new ground, rest assured that it is a virtual necessity in today's workplace and may very well be all-but mandatory in the coming decade.
The Objectives of CompTIA Cloud+ Certification
Like all CompTIA exams, Cloud+ is designed by subject matter experts to instruct the most crucial knowledge that an entry level IT technician needs to master to be successful in their occupation. While it is not an encyclopedic survey of everything a tech needs to know, it provides the skeleton of the knowledge base that their body of work will be built around throughout their career. For Cloud+ a student can be expected to demonstrate knowledge of:
- Terms and methodologies that every tech will need to know to navigate the cloud
- Ability to implement, deliver and maintain cloud technology and infrastructure
- Best practices related to security, safety, and industry applications
Students enrolled in the course will cover this information in an in-class setting as well as being provided all study materials that cover the sections of the examination. A significant amount of independent study will be required to have success on the exam, as the subject areas have considerable depth.
Sections of the CompTIA Cloud+ Exam
The Cloud+ examination has the following sections that check subject matter knowledge that is contained in the course materials.
- Cloud Concepts and Models
- Resource Management
- System Management
- Business Continuity in the Cloud
As you can see this is an all-encompassing survey of the fundamental knowledge that an IT professional needs not only to work with the technology but also to successfully leverage it to meet the specific needs of a business environment. It puts aside theory in favor of practicality, cutting through to the significant part in each distinct subject area.
The Benefits of a CompTIA Cloud+ Certification
IT workers who complete this robust credential can expect to have an easier path to success in the first few years of their career and be better prepared not only for cloud computing as it exists today but be ready to look beyond cloud computing to new technologies that will be developed in the immediate future. It demonstrates basic competence by virtue of completion of the course and passing the examination, but it also gives employees space to build on the knowledge that they learn on the course in the first months of their employment and build their practice in the IT industry.
Prepare for the Future of Cloud Computing Today
The field of information technology is moving as a breakneck pace, and the field of cloud computing may be moving even faster. Having employees who can keep up with this pace and even stay ahead of the curve is a significant competitive advantage for any employer. This is why the demand for workers who have completed CompTIA Cloud+ certification is growing every month. It is a challenging and demanding course of study, but those who complete it are better prepared to tackle the unique challenges that the cloud presents.
