PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - The Cloud Credential Council, the global organization focused on accelerating adoption of cloud computing through cloud training and certification, is inviting cloud leaders, senior practitioners, and learning and development experts from around the world to participate in workshops centered on cloud education learning paths. After a successful start with Cloud Essentials and Virtualization Essentials certifications, the CCC is setting its sights on creating the next industry-standard learning and certification paths for key roles and organizations affected by cloud adoption.
Workshops in Washington, DC (July 23-25) and San Jose, CA (August 14-15) will focus on identifying key roles in organizations impacted by cloud, identifying necessary competencies and developing learning paths and training syllabi. The output will enable course content providers and training vendors to help the market accelerate the adoption of cloud. Individuals will benefit from a recognized certification. Corporations and organizations will benefit by having reliable, high-quality standards. In addition, technology vendors will benefit by ensuring that the momentum of cloud adoption is not hampered by a lack of skills in the market.
"This volunteer-driven initiative allows participants to shape the future of cloud training and certification," says Marcel Heilijgers, Executive Director, CCC. "Attendees will have the opportunity to provide input at an early stage to ensure the learning paths align with their needs."
Those interested in participating in the workshops can sign up at www.cloudcredential.org.
The CCC, currently a combination of 33 partners, 10 members and eight review board members, is an independent, vendor-neutral developer of cloud competence certifications looking to serve as the key resource for global cloud standards collaboration. Using a cooperative approach to share knowledge and insights into the cloud industry, the council also acts as a platform to assure the quality of design and delivery for cloud certification training programs.
