Course Overview:

This bootcamp is a customized course for Cloud Essentials+ and Cloud+ that leverages 8 days to provide greater value than just the delivery of two separate courses. The 8 days of instruction prepare the student for the CCSP course.

TechNow has Identified overlap and uses time saved to:

  • Introduce hands-on skills (Open Source and AWS)
  • Go more in-depth on theory using hands-on to reinforce concepts
  • Do exam prep with practice questions

This course covers the knowledge and skills required to understand standard Cloud terminologies/methodologies, to implement, maintain, and deliver cloud technologies and infrastructures (e.g. server, network, storage, and virtualization technologies), and to understand aspects of IT security and use of industry best practices related to cloud implementations and the application of virtualization.

This bootcamp helps prepare students for 2 certifications, CompTIA Clouds Essentials+ and CompTIA Cloud+.  After this course students will also be prepared to continue their education by taking CL-315: CCSP – Certified Cloud Security Professional Preparation Seminar .

TechNow has worked worldwide enterprise infrastructures for over 20 years and has developed demos and labs to exemplify the techniques required to demonstrate cloud technologies and to effectively manage security in the cloud environment.

TechNow is a CompTIA partner and uses official CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ and CompTIA Cloud+ curriculum.

Attendees to CL-218: Introduction to Cloud Infrastructure and Operations Bootcamp will receive TechNow approved course materials and expert instruction.
