CARY, N.C. and TORONTO - Global Knowledge, the world's leading learning services and professional development solutions provider, today announced plans to offer six courses for the new Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Cloud certifications in fall 2015.
"As Cisco's 2015 Global Learning Partner of the Year, our commitment to the highest-quality training and skills enablement ensures our students are getting the most out of their Cisco certification preparation investment," said Michael Fox, senior vice president at Global Knowledge. "We look forward to offering these courses to help IT professionals successfully make the transition from data center and networking job roles during their organization's transition to cloud service delivery models."
"With Cisco announcing its new cloud certification portfolio earlier this week, IT professionals can be assured that we will continue to support their professional development with the latest Cisco exam preparation courses," said Michael Watkins, Cisco senior product director at Global Knowledge. "The CCNA and CCNP Cloud Career Certifications will be no exception. Global Knowledge is preparing to offer the six recommended training courses as soon as possible. We know engineers, networking professionals and infrastructure architects need to remain relevant in the cloud landscape and enhance their skills to keep pace with technological and business process advancements."
Cloud computing's "pay for what you use" shared server capabilities remove the high up-front infrastructure investment that businesses typically must make in order to start a new venture or expand or maintain existing services. The cloud's automation functions also help improve organizational efficiencies and service.
Global Knowledge will offer the following courses:
- CCNA Cloud - Understanding Cisco Cloud Fundamentals
- CCNA Cloud - Introducing Cisco Cloud Administration
- CCNP Cloud - Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure
- CCNP Cloud - Designing the Cisco Cloud
- CCNP Cloud - Automating the Cisco Enterprise Cloud
- CCNP Cloud - Building the Cisco Cloud with Application Centric Infrastructure
These new courses are designed for cloud engineers who specialize in operations, virtualization, support and networking, as well as for cloud administrators, cloud infrastructure architects, and data center engineers.
