Major technology companies such as Microsoft, Huawei, GE, Cisco, AT&T, Google, Fujitsu, and IBM have all recognized the great growth opportunities underlying IoT and invested accordingly. Driving improvements in productivity, increasing operational efficiency and developing new business models are only some of the promises of IoT.
Obtaining IoT expertise has become a necessity rather than an option for any organization undergoing a rapid digital transformation journey. While there is an increasing demand for IoT skills and competences, only a few professionals can currently claim to know the fundamentals of IoT.
The industry-recognized CCC Internet of Things Foundation course ensures you are ready to add value to organizations of diverse industries and dimensions. It does so through highly interactive and thought-provoking discussions which focus on:
Group exploration and discussions
Lab exercises which allow learners to experience IoT applications
Case study scenarios for IoT
End of Module questions
Once the certification exam is passed, you are awarded a diploma and digital badge officially recognizing you have achieved the CCC Internet of Things Foundation certification and are now a member of the Cloud Credential Council’s global community.
As an Internet of Things-certified, a candidate will be able to:
Define the fundamental concepts, definitions, evolution and types of IoT.
List the IoT key drivers and business perspectives including monetization models.
Understand the architecture (basic building blocks) and working of IoT.
Understand various communication and network connectivity protocols of IoT.
Examine how the capabilities of IoT get enhanced when combined with digital transformative technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G, Blockchain, Digital Twin, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and others.
Identify IoT security issues and the appropriate mitigation measures and best practices.
Examine IoT case studies and future growth opportunities in the coming years.
The following departments benefit from CCC Internet of Things Foundation-certified professionals:
Finance & Accounting
Marketing & Sales
Research & Development
Possessing a basic understanding of Cloud Computing characteristics as well as Big Data, Internet and Networking concepts is recommended but not required for the completion of the certification.
