IDCA launches Certified Cloud Courses!
Building a better world for all...
Washington, D.C., July 4th 2018: On the occasion of Independence Day, The International Data Center Authority (IDCA) announced that it has launched IDCA certified cloud courses to the public. The news comes after years of cognitive development and standards development around the concept of cloud. IDCA is set out to offer most comprehensive, effective and robust cloud education, certification and career advancement programs for industry professionals.
Mehdi Paryavi, Chairman of IDCA stated, “Our job is to educate and standardize. Cloud is not the future any longer. It is here and now. Therefore, we are addressing it, as simple as that. We have previously addressed our concerns and corrective measures through our vendor-agnostic standardization efforts. Now, vendor-neutral training for cloud has arrived to complement our industry. We have been actively working on the cloud concepts and principles for years and the aim is to relinquish the industry from uneducated guess work while making lucrative choices.”
IDCA’s announcement for the launch of IDCA certified cloud courses comes on the conclusion and optimization all educational programs and on the 2018 celebration of Independence Day.
Richard Bowie, Board Member and Programs Council at IDCA stated, “Throughout the decades of working on modern topics of my days, I have never see so much enthusiasm for anything but cloud.” Mr. Bowie continued, “What we have accomplished here at IDCA is nothing short than a breakthrough for all individuals and enterprises involved in the industry of cloud making and cloud management.” He further stated, "You want to be a certified cloud engineer? You want to be a certified cloud operator? You want to make sure your people know what they are talking about? IDCA has got the program you.”
Brian K. Branson, Board Member of IDCA and former CEO of Global Knowledge expressed, “We are excited of this accomplishment. We are even more excited by our industry’s encouragements, enthusiasm and support. This modern-day education is something the companies and professionals in our industry have been aching for. I know as an expert educator and someone who ran the biggest training company for professionals in North America.”
Subhan Jahromi, Director of PR at IDCA mentioned, “IDCA is about addressing the needs in a responsive and responsible way. Our time and the industry’s time is more valuable than trying to solve issues that were already solved in folds 20 years ago. People are tired of hearing the same old story over and over again. Times have changed, providers need to catch up, so do the vendors.” Jahromi concluded, “IDCA has proudly worked independent of any vendor whatsoever in building the most credible training and education materials as well as Infinity Paradigm Standards Framework. We have done it with the help of end-users, people like you and I, the real stakeholders of our industry and independent of any outside influence. This is why we release the world first and most comprehensive vendor independent cloud courses on Independence Day.”
IDCA cloud programs will be open to the public from Q1 of 2019. All courses, venues and schedules will be available on the IDCA education provider portal: https://datacenter.education.
