Cloud Technology Associate (CTA)

26 FEB 2018-28 FEB 2018 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (3 Days)

Network Training Center




An official CCC Cloud Technology Associate is a 2 day course, run by the Master Trainer itself. There are only few worldwide classes that run by the Master Trainer on exceptional request, we call it as a Master class.

The CCC Cloud Technology Associate™ certification demonstrates that participants have the basic skill set and knowledge associated with cloud and virtualization. This certification is a critical step to advance your career as organizations look for qualified Cloud Technology Associates. 

The certification allows IT professionals to operate effectively in a cloud environment as they can demonstrate an understanding of the cloud key concepts and its relevant terminology. Furthermore, it provides the foundation needed to successfully complete subsequent vendor-specific training/ certification programs and also provides a baseline for the subsequent CCC Professional level certifications.
