Cloud Training & Learning Resources

Use the filters to narrow your search. Staff who want general overview information about the cloud should select the Cloud Foundations Track. Content that is in progress or planned for future delivery will be noted.

ITS aspires to provide foundational and core cloud competency training opportunities for all of ITS. Cloud foundations sessions are currently being scheduled to orient the next rotation of vDC technical experts. As sessions are scheduled, and open seats become available, we will reach out to those that have indicated interest. If you are interested in cloud foundations sessions, please complete this Training Interest Survey

Our goal is to provide the most effective training possible. With that in mind, our training with labs require a Subject Matter Expert present to help make the lab more interactive, provide some work opportunities, and answer questions. Due to this requirement, we may be limited on the frequency with which we can offer labs.
