Our rigorous boot camp-style certificate program systematically helps learners with no information technology background acquire all the critical competencies required to take on the role of a cloud IT administrator. It also sets them up for a future move into the exciting new area of cloud DevOps.

Boot camp courses are taught 100 percent virtually through our proprietary learning management system with a combination of asynchronous and synchronous sessions via Zoom.  Live online sessions (synchronous) take place three days per week. Live sessions are recorded, but students are expected to attend all live sessions to be successful.
