CAREER AND TECHNICAL CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
DIVISION: BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY
 
The career and technical certificate program in Cloud Computing Foundations provides students with the foundational knowledge needed as a cloud computing practitioner.  The program teaches students the fundamentals of using common information technologies and advances them to the fundamentals of creating a computer network.  It explains the difference between storing data on local physical hardware verses storing it on remote servers also known as the cloud.  Finally, it introduces how to protect data from the vulnerabilities that can exist when sharing information on a network.  The certificate program is ideal for individuals who may already have a strong IT career or who are currently pursuing a more advanced IT degree.  It provides these students with an opportunity to transition over to a career in cloud computing through a short program.  The required courses map to several industry-based certifications and can serve as preparation for these exams. 
 
The College also offers an Associate of Applied Science degree program in Cloud Computing.  Learn more about this program.
