The CompTIA Cloud Essentials course is an entry-level specialty course aimed at demonstrating that a student has working knowledge of cloud computing, what it means from both a technical and business perspective, and has general knowledge of what is involved in moving to and working securely within the cloud.

CompTIA is the de facto global IT credentialing organization, a nonprofit with a 30 year history of producing vendor-neutral certifications for IT professionals. CompTIA works with experts from around the world to design, write, review and test the classes that it offers, and it runs surveys and studies habitually to keep abreast of trends and best practices in the field in a wide variety of industries and applications. This focus and dedication is why IT professionals seek out CompTIA certification and why employers look for it. This course was developed with the assistance of ITpreneurs and the Cloud Credential Council.
