Cloud Associate

Cloud also known as Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT services and resources over the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.

Section one will cover Azure and prepare the learner to sit for the Azure Fundamental Certification (AZ-900) exam.

AWS Certified Solutions Architect is among the most valuable and sought-after cloud computing certifications in the world.
