VMware Expands Availability of Cloud Credential Council Certification Course Offerings to Australia and New Zealand

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 28, 2013) -  VMware has paired up with the Cloud Credential Council (CCC) to expand global availability of the CCC certification courses.

Current CCC cloud certification courses and exams (Cloud Essentials and Virtualization Essentials) have enabled candidates across the globe to increase their cloud skills level significantly. With input from top technology vendors the CCC is expanding to offer the most complete cloud training and certification portfolio available covering domains such as Solutions Architect, Developer, Administrator, Security/Governance, and Service Manager. The CCC has also embarked on Cloud Forensics to address law enforcement and will expand the portfolio further with Big Data & Cloud, and other important areas. In addition the CCC will develop general cloud adoption guidance for organizations as well as industry-specific and country-specific cloud adoption guidance.

"Companies are recognizing the potential of cloud computing to transform their business, and they are in search of talent with the necessary skills to help them maximize their investment," said Marcel Heilijgers, Executive Director of the Cloud Credential Council.

The relationship with VMware enables students to complement a vendor-neutral track with a technology-specific track.

"With the CCC-VMware linkage, we are helping businesses transform with cloud successfully by addressing the cloud skills gap in the market. There is a need for both technology-neutral and technology-specific skills, and the CCC offering complements the VMware offering exceptionally well. The combination of CCC and VMware courses and certifications fully prepares candidates to meet the requirements of the cloud age. Following the release in the Americas earlier this year, we are pleased to announce the expansion of the CCC certification course portfolio to include Australia and New Zealand starting on May 20th 2013," said Eva Bishop, Vice President of Global Education Sales and Delivery, VMware. "We believe that the CCC certification courses provide an excellent foundation for VMware courses and preparation for achievement of VMware Certifications."
