Cloud technology Associate Certification Cloud Credential Council (CCC)

Updated: Sep 24, 2019


Course Introduction


The CCC Cloud Technology Associate™ certification demonstrates that candidates have the basic skill set and knowledge associated with cloud and virtualization. The certification is a

critical step to advance your career as organizations look for qualified Cloud Technology Associates.

The certification allows IT professionals to operate effectively in a cloud environment as they can demonstrate an understanding of the key concepts and relevant terminology. It furthermore provides the foundation needed in order to successfully complete subsequent vendor-specific training/certification programs and also provides a baseline for the subsequent CCC Professional level certifications.
