Along with a comprehensive curriculum that follows industry best practices, the program also provides learners 30 live industry-based projects, Capstone projects in four industry domains, and Masterclasses from experts at Caltech CTME. This blended learning approach ensures that program participants receive an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals and abundant opportunities for hands-on practice and learning.

“Organizations are looking for IT professionals who can seamlessly integrate applications and infrastructure into the Cloud.”, stated Dr. Rick Hefner, program director, Caltech CTME.  He further added, “Aspiring cloud professionals must demonstrate the appropriate skills and knowledge to compete favorably in the market, and a Caltech CTME Cloud certificate is the best way to do that. Our collaboration with Simplilearn allows learners to build a strong portfolio of applications to show potential employers. We are excited to offer this practical, hands-on certification program to tomorrow’s technology leaders.”

Several studies have highlighted the cloud skills shortage in the industry. Speaking on the launch of the program, Anand Narayanan, chief product officer, Simplilearn said, “With increasing data volumes and decreasing data center bandwidth, IT spending forecasts point to continued demand for cloud infrastructure services. Also, with the widespread adoption of work from home, organizations are looking for solutions in cloud technology to support uninterrupted access to work-based data, in turn boosting demand for cloud specialists. At Simplilearn, we strive to offer the most comprehensive learning programs by covering a wide range of subjects with an in-depth analysis of each. Through the PGP in Cloud Computing in collaboration with Caltech CTME, we aim to equip professionals with industry-relevant skills and help advance their career paths in the cloud domain.”

On completion of the PGP Cloud program, participants will receive a joint industry-recognized certificate from Caltech CTME and Simplilearn and 30 CEUs (Continued Education Units) that can be applied to professional qualifications and employer requirements. Graduates will receive membership in the prestigious CTME Circle, a network for professionals, and will also be eligible for the job placement assistance, such as iimjobs.com (India only), an exclusive online recruitment platform.
