CompTIA Cloud+

Course Code: CV0-003

The CompTIA Cloud+ course will help the student with the knowledge and best practices required of IT practitioners working in cloud computing environments and who must understand and deliver cloud infrastructure.

This course is the only performance-based IT certification that views cloud- based infrastructure services in the context of broader IT systems operations regardless of the platform. Migrating to the cloud presents opportunities to deploy, optimize, and protect mission critical applications and data storage. CompTIA Cloud+ validates the technical skills needed to secure these valuable assets.


In this course, you will be able to:

  • Architect, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments to support a resilient enterprise.
  • Use monitoring, detection, incident response, and automation to proactively support ongoing security operations in an enterprise environment
  • Apply security practices to cloud, on-premises, endpoint, and mobile infrastructure, while considering cryptographic technologies and techniques
  • Consider the impact of governance, risk, and compliance requirements throughout the enterprise
  • CompTIA Network+ and Server+ and 2-3 years of experience in systems administration or networking.
  • Cloud Systems Administrator
  • Cloud Engineer
  • Solution Architect
  • Solution Architect
  • Cloud Security Specialist
  • Server Administrator
  • Cloud Specialist
  • Experienced computer support professionals with a working knowledge of computer hardware, software, and operating systems to prepare for the CompTIA® Cloud+(Exam CV0-001)
  • Who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of cloud technologies and acquire the required skills to prepare for a career in in that field
