While AIICT cannot guarantee any job outcomes, our cloud computing course can lay the foundations for entry-level job opportunities in the field.

Potential career paths include:

Cloud engineering. With much of our course exploring aspects of cloud architecture, migration, security, and maintenance – you’ll build the fundamental skills required to start pursuing a career in cloud engineering. These are the experts responsible for building, maintaining, and implementing the use of cloud services; with experience in AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud often in high demand.

Cloud administration. Our program also focuses on ways of operating the cloud, granting you basic experience in cloud-related administrative tasks. Cloud administrators are responsible for developing, maintaining, and configuring the systems and processes within cloud platforms – ensuring optimum performance and addressing any operational issues. They may also automate certain workloads or procedures, helping these systems work as efficiently as possible.

Cloud computing consultancy. Your newfound knowledge of cloud concepts, practices, compliance and business principles can help set the stage for opportunities as a cloud consultant. You’ll additionally have expertise of major cloud providers under your belt, further boosting your skills value on the job market. As the name suggests, these professionals are closely familiar with cloud-related operations and software, helping businesses make the right decisions when adopting the technology.

AIICT’s Cloud Computing Certified Professional course offers certification under four leading global IT bodies:

CompTIA Cloud Essentials+, a certification that equips you with the fundamental skills and concepts of cloud management, administration, development, and operation;

AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner, a certification that explores AWS’ cloud environment and its benefits for business;

Microsoft Azure Fundamentals, a certification that verifies your basic knowledge of Microsoft Azure’s cloud services – including how to manage workloads, security, and privacy in these environments; and

Google Cloud Digital Leader, a certification that builds your cloud computing skills in a Google Cloud environment, offering practical experience through Qwiklabs projects.

Arming you with internationally-recognised credentials, you’ll enter the cloud computing field with a competitive edge, helping you draw the attention of potential employers. With our training flexibly delivered online, you’ll also have the freedom of studying at a schedule, place, and pace that suits you best, helping you tend to other commitments if necessary.

Additionally, graduates gain access to our Industry Partner Program – a membership that offers further career coaching and links you to prospective companies in the industry, helping further open doors in your cloud computing career journey.

AIICT’s cloud computing course will explore the cloud environments of industry’s three leading providers: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Training will include practical “cloud labs” that can help you gain hands-on experience in navigating these platforms, building your portfolio for future employment.

Additionally, through our internationally-recognised CompTIA course, students will also delve into field essentials such as:

  • Cloud security

  • Cloud compliance

  • Cloud management and operations

  • Key cloud concepts and business principles

  • Risk management

Those looking to enter the cloud computing industry are recommended to undertake formal training. Having a recognised qualification under your belt not only verifies your expertise for prospective companies, it also demonstrates your initiative, and ensures employers of a skillset that’s up-to-date, industry standard, and competitive.

While training in general cloud computing foundations are important, however, professionals are also encouraged to get certified under a leading cloud provider. This includes the three major players: AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, each of which offer a variety of high-paying certifications. Expertise in a specific cloud environment can further your opportunities among businesses partnered with these vendors, ensuring them that you “speak the same language”.

Finally, building a substantial cloud portfolio (from both your training and work experiences) is crucial. Having a collection of all your previous cloud-related projects – as well as reputable references – can help prove your skillset, experience, and innovative vision to prospective employers.
