How This Course Works
In this course you will have the opportunity to work through a four-phased process of moving to the cloud. Each module begins with an interactive introductory presentation that introduces each phase based on specific learning objectives, incorporates knowledge checks and provides access to additional resources with examples to further explore the topics covered in the module. Through the immersive exercise you will be introduced to StartItNow, a fictitious holding and consultancy company, who have been directed by the board to adopt cloud services consumption. Each episode in the immersive exercise will help you put each of the phases of the plan into action.
At the end of the course, you will be asked to take a final assessment. Please note that you must score 70% or higher on the final assessment prior to receiving a certificate of completion and earning four (4) continuing professional education (CPE) credits.
Please make sure at the end of the course that you download and retain the certificate of completion as proof of credits earned.
