Simplilearn in collaboration with Caltech CTME (Center for Technology and Management Education) will launch a Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Cloud Computing. The learning program, which comprises 300+ hours of study, prepares professionals for a career as a Cloud Architect, Cloud Consultant, or Cloud Engineer.
Upon successful completion of the program, learners will receive a Caltech CTME Post Graduate certificate. This program follows our recently launched and already popular Post Graduate Program in DevOps. These programs offer learners around the globe access to world-class trainers and the work-ready tools and methods needed in today’s professional world.
The program enables learners to master the software architecture, design, and implementation principles required for cloud computing. During the 12-month program, learners will build the core skill sets needed for designing, planning, and scaling cloud implementation on the three top cloud platform providers.
The PGP program in Cloud Computing brings together Simplilearn’s blended learning delivery model with the academic excellence of Caltech CTME. The blending learning environment combines live online classes, self-paced learning, labs and projects, extensive peer-interaction, and 24/7 access to Teaching Assistants (TA’s), said a statement from the company.
The program also provides learners 30 live industry-based projects, Capstone projects in four industry domains, and Masterclasses from experts at Caltech CTME. “Organizations are looking for IT professionals who can seamlessly integrate applications and infrastructure into the Cloud.”, stated Dr. Rick Hefner, program director, Caltech CTME. “Aspiring cloud professionals must demonstrate the appropriate skills and knowledge to compete favorably in the market, and a Caltech CTME Cloud certificate is the best way to do that. Our collaboration with Simplilearn allows learners to build a strong portfolio of applications to show potential employers. We are excited to offer this practical, hands-on certification program to tomorrow’s technology leaders.”
Anand Narayanan, chief product officer, Simplilearn said: “With increasing data volumes and decreasing data center bandwidth, IT spending forecasts point to continued demand for cloud infrastructure services. Also, with the widespread adoption of work from home, organizations are looking for solutions in cloud technology to support uninterrupted access to work-based data, in turn boosting demand for cloud specialists. At Simplilearn, we strive to offer the most comprehensive learning programs by covering a wide range of subjects with an in-depth analysis of each. Through the PGP in Cloud Computing in collaboration with Caltech CTME, we aim to equip professionals with industry-relevant skills and help advance their career paths in the cloud domain.”
