As the cloud rapidly evolves, the IBM Center for Cloud Training is evolving its courses to help you stay on top of technologies and business needs.

IBM Cloud Associate Solution Advisor is updated to IBM Cloud Technical Advocate to offer you a self-paced learning path that provides the foundational understanding to discuss and use cloud services with confidence.

In this no-cost curriculum, you’ll interact with about 25 hours of course content and apply your learning with practice exercises in a virtual lab environment. When you’ve finished, you’ll be ready to prepare for your first IBM Cloud certification. All coursework includes release notes and pre-assessment certification. Additional Cloud Technical Advocate concepts are included to prepare you for exam day success.

If you’ve already begun the IBM Cloud Associate Solution Advisor program, no worries. You can proceed through the courses as planned. The IBM Certified Solution Advisor – IBM Cloud Foundation v2 exam will be available through September 30, 2021. However, we recommend you take the new certification exam, which has been updated to tightly align with the IBM Cloud Solution Advisor curriculum.
