This foundational CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ training prepares learners to take the CLO-002 exam, which is the one exam required to earn the Cloud Essentials+ certification.
The Cloud Essentials+ certification is one of CompTIA's many IT certifications that aren't exactly made for IT professionals. Although there's plenty of valuable information that a cloud administrator or a network engineer could benefit from, the certifying exam is much more oriented toward staff members who don't normally have a lot of input in technological concerns.
CompTIA's Cloud Essentials+ is about key business principles and fundamental concepts about cloud technologies. Using or transitioning to the cloud can introduce inefficiencies, higher costs and security risks for an organization. This training help ensure that all staff members -- not just the IT staff -- understand those potential downsides and can be a part of the solution to making the best out of cloud technology decisions.
For anyone who manages cloud computing basics training, this CompTIA training can be used for CLO-002 exam prep, onboarding new technical or non-technical professionals, individual or team training plans, or as a CompTIA reference resource.
