The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Multicloud Education 

The holiday season is here! And while the season of giving often involves gifting to others, have you thought about the gift you’d like to give yourself?  

 

 This year, we’d like to offer you the gift that keeps on giving: multicloud education.  

 

As enterprises become increasingly multicloud, they seek qualified and experienced multicloud experts. According to a recent survey, 76% of employers are already multicloud; 90% say they will be multicloud in the next two years. And this is how the Aviatrix Certified Engineer (ACE) Program can benefit you! ACE is the industry’s first and only multicloud networking certification. Its comprehensive training and specialized courses provide a deep understanding of building, operating, automating, scaling, and securing multicloud networks across any cloud – AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and more. 

 

The ACE Program allows IT professionals like you, from novice to expert, to customize their learning journey based on cloud education interests. ACEs can progress through our standard learning path, starting with Associate, then Professional, and finally to Design Expert, and take optional courses in Operations and Automation for specialized cloud roles.  

 

The ACE Program offers a variety of learning options to fit many interests. Read on to learn about the trainings we recommend as you reflect on 2022 and set professional and educational goals for yourself in 2023 and beyond.
