Cloud Academy Overview

What is Cloud Academy?

Cloud Academy is a training and skills development platform designed specifically for technical skills. The cloud-based platform allows businesses to train and monitor their employees via learning paths, skills assessments, weekly reports, progress tracking, a pre-built training library, and more. Cloud Academy is designed to accelerate learning and innovation through guided training content and role-specific learning material.

Cloud Academy allows businesses to offer role-specific training to employees on leading clouds such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, essential methodologies for working within the cloud, and capabilities such as big data, DevOps, programming, machine learning, IoT, and more. The assessment features within Cloud Academy facilitate competency and practical skills testing across multiple cloud platforms and managers are able to assign specific tasks to team members, create custom learning paths, and send reminders to team members about pending training.

Employers are able to measure expertise using Cloud Academy’s skills reports and lab scenario performance. Users can access the Cloud Academy library of over 10,000 hours of training material to assign tasks to team members or create their own learning content or training tasks based on their own production environment and business needs.

Pros

Frankly, the best thing about cloud academy is its interface. Not only the course material but also Leaderboard feature, real time lab environment (aws console in my case), standard question pattern for the exams or lab challenges they held , and mostly the way cloud academy team supports every issue you face with the application. Too good. Thank you som much

Cons

I have used many learning platforms , but this has been the best yet.
I would really appreciate if you guys add the brief pdf version of the lectures.
