In this program, you’ll get the skills and training you need to get a job as a Cloud Practitioner. This bootcamp style training will be Monday to Friday, 9 am to 3 pm, for 16 weeks. This includes technical training  combined with hands-on projects and employability skills development.

What is the cloud?

The cloud refers to services and software that run on the Internet, instead of locally on your computer. Cloud infrastructures have become increasingly valuable. They’re all around us: every time we access multimedia from the internet or run a software program without installation.

The benefits of cloud for individuals, businesses, and society include: flexibility, cost, disaster recovery, accessibility, scalability, security and customisation — and that’s just the beginning! Cloud is an area that is growing every day. For this reason, the world relies on committed and responsible Cloud Practitioners to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Microsoft Azure

This program prepares, trains and certifies you for Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. Azure provides a range of cloud services, including compute, analytics, storage and networking. An Azure certification can get you into different roles in industries like healthcare, finance and entertainment. It’s favoured as a cloud platform for its hybrid compatibility, trusted security features and AI innovation.
