What is Cloud Computing & Virtualisation?

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet. It's a flexible, convenient and affordable way to manage infrastructure, platforms and software. We offer official training across the three major cloud service providers (AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform) and other public and private cloud vendors (VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, Oracle and Red Hat). Our expert tutors can help you at every stage of your cloud journey – from the basics to beyond. We’ll improve your cloud know-how and show you how best to use it.

Our learners have given us an average NPS score of 8.7 out of 10 for our Cloud Computing & Virtualisation training [Jan-Oct 2020]. And we’re always trying to improve it so that our learners have the best possible experience.

Cloud for Organisations

We partner with the leading Cloud Platform providers to provide authorised training, apprenticeships and talent solutions in order to build the workforce of the future.

The world is changing. Are you ready to change with it?

Over 2.5 quitillion bytes of data are created every single day!

…and it's only going to grow from there…

It’s estimated that in 2020 1.7MB of data will be created every second for every person on earth. And its not just data – businesses are relying more and more on technological solutions that require heavier storage and need support to maintain IT speed!

As a result more than a third of organisations see cloud investments as a top three investment priority and as part of this the workforces of the future need to readjust.

94% of hiring mangers are having a ‘somewhat difficult’ time finding cloud tech candidates. Therefore the focus needs to also be on upskilling the current workforce.
