IT professionals need to know a whole lot more about the various ways of delivering services to the customers and end-users. It is no longer sufficient just to know the differences between Windows-based or Linux-based architecture. These days, most services will utilize some form of Cloud Computing, be it virtualization or SaaS offerings.
So with the change in computing and IT service delivery there comes a whole new series of qualifications and certifications. The Cloud Computing Certification Scheme has been created to support the IT Professional who needs to be a ‘niche generalist’, especially in a rapidly changing area like Cloud Computing.
How does the certification pathway work?
The Cloud Computing pathway is made up of 5 different certifications: a foundation, 3 specialists and a managers certification.

How do I achieve my Expert level?
By completing all programs (Foundation, Specialists, and Managing Services in the Cloud) and the associated exams successfully, the participant will be awarded the Cloud Computing Expert certification. This is awarded automatically upon passing the Managing Services in the Cloud exam.
