Training News - March Update CTP Cloud Academy Training

CTP have added training in Cloud technologies to the CTP programme. Cloud Academy will enable Service leavers to gain specific skills by job role or a particular technology such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and DevOps. Training includes other skills such as ITIL 4 in Service Management, Prince2 Foundation, Agile, Scrum and Python.

Service leavers who register for access to Cloud Academy will have one year access to hundreds of online courses, video lectures, short quizzes, guided hands-on labs, and practice exams.

There are a variety of learning pathways to guide users in relevant skills with several courses towards gaining particular knowledge.

Cloud Academy is suitable for any skill level or ability, if the user has an interest in gaining cloud computing skills. The cost is £495 for one year access to the platform and full details can be found on our website here, with bookings through CBIC.

With a huge skills shortage in Cloud technologies, there are a significant number and type of roles available. We currently have 180 Cloud Computing roles advertised on Right Job, and we have a number of Employers, including Amazon at our Employment Fairs who would be keen to discuss cloud opportunities and the skills required. Adzuna.co.uk shows over 60,000 cloud computing roles in the UK at present with an average salary of £59k and these types of roles will often enable the Employee to work remotely.
