In this foundational CompTIA Cloud Essentials training, Anthony Sequeira prepares technical and non-technical professionals to take the CLO-001 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the CompTIA Cloud Essentials certification.

The CompTIA Cloud Essentials is the preferred cloud certification for business and non-IT professionals, and the perfect way to go from zero to cloud-ready. Most other foundational cloud training is vendor-specific, but CompTIA takes a high-level look at cloud technology — and the cloud economy. In this training, you’ll learn the steps required to successfully adopt and implement cloud services within your company, while gaining an understanding of the impact cloud computing provides from a business perspective.

This video training course with Anthony Sequeira will help learners understand the fundamental components that make up their company's cloud solutions — on both the technical and business sides — as they prepare for the CompTIA CLO-001 exam.

For anyone who leads a technology team, this Cloud Essentials training can be used for CLO-001 exam prep, onboarding employees, or as part of cloud migration training.
