Thrive in the Cloud and Go Beyond What Everyone Else is Doing

Share this post:

For a rapidly growing number of companies and computing professionals, the cloud is the place to be. And IBM can help you get there.

The award-winning IBM Center for Cloud Training (ICCT) provides hands-on lab learning experiences as well as industry-recognized, role-based professional certifications to deliver the essential skills you need to thrive in the cloud.


Go beyond what everyone else is doing

We asked several professionals who recently completed IBM Cloud courses and earned one of the IBM Cloud role-based certifications: Why?  Here are some of their answers:

  • Go beyond what everyone else is doing
  • Stay current, stay relevant
  • Build skills, gain a better perspective to get that next assignment
  • Start working on cloud projects immediately
  • Adapt to change, get out of my comfort zone to become a better leader

Clearly, with IBM Cloud certifications, professionals are achieving both individual and organizational goals. You can, too.

So, where do you begin? From introductory courses to more intense training, the award-winning IBM Center for Cloud Training has a learning path for you.

Follow the paths.
