New Horizons® Delivers CloudMASTER®

New Horizons® Delivers CloudMASTER®

For over 30 years, New Horizons has provided more than 30 million students with industry-leading technical training that delivers the most relevant and intuitive computer courses and certifications. They are the world’s largest independent IT training company, with over 300 computer training centers in 70 countries (and counting). In a move to expand that lead, New Horizons is now proud to offer the complete suite of CloudMASTER programs, providing vendor-agnostic cloud training as the spearhead of their cloud curriculum.

We are now living in a technology world governed by the advent of Digital Transformation – the inclusion of digital technology in all aspects of our lives and the ways in which businesses need to adjust to meet this reality. This is the messaging IT Professionals are hearing from all major technology vendors. No matter the details each vendor may use to spin this message, Digital Transformation cannot exist without the cloud at its core. Our customers are going to need to be cloud-proficient in order to achieve professional growth or to obtain employment. The NCTA CloudMASTER® program is the perfect starting point to achieve this proficiency.

CloudMASTER® certification program is comprised of three courses with exams:

  • Cloud Technologies: An overview of cloud computing will help you develop a deep understanding of the models and understand the landscape of technologies used in the cloud and those employed by users of cloud services. You will receive multiple points of view, firsthand experience and a foundation in managing industry leading cloud services like Amazon Web Services, Drupal, WordPress, Google Docs and Digital Ocean.
  • Cloud Operations: This module helps you study the management of cloud operations and addresses the application need for compute power, managing CPU scaling, and meeting both structured and unstructured storage requirements. You will learn how to painlessly deploy fairly complex applications that scale across multiple instances in cloud technologies including Windows Azure Chef, Chef Solo, Linux and Windows Tools.
  • Cloud Architecture: This module includes OpenShift, OpenStack, VMware, Amazon Web Services, Azure and Rackspace, and provides a framework to assess application performance needs while addressing business requirements of Return on Investment (ROI), Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Groups will complete a cloud assessment of Fortune 100 firms using public information and make presentations to the client.

Those seeking CloudMASTER® status must pass each of these exams or take one cumulative CloudMASTER examination.
