Career opportunities:

“The opportunities are endless and ever growing” is the right way to start and conclude this topic. Cloud Computing is the broad terminology used for a wide variety of technologies used to store, manage, and process data using a network of internet hosted remote servers. The usage of local servers becomes minimal or nil in the world of cloud computing. Cloud computing is no more just for businesses but for individuals too.
Cloud Computing provides businesses the ability to scale rapidly according to growth demands. Almost everything in the digital world is connected to the cloud in some way or another. As we try new ways to organize, process and present data, Cloud Computing is becoming more and more an inevitable part of our lives. With the sudden increase in the number of smartphone users getting connected to the world wide web, the increase in usage of mailing and messaging platforms and sharing of photos, videos and other forms of data requiring ever increasing spaces for storage, cloud is the solution provided to all. Leading mobile device manufactures, service providers, messaging platforms, email clients, etc. provide cloud services to its clients.
The future of Cloud Computing is hybrid wherein organizations will leverage multiple cloud platforms instead of locking into a single provider and thereby introducing an undesired but eventual complexity requiring IT professionals to be trained in operating in multiple cloud platform environments.
It is said that currently there are around 18 million jobs across the world for cloud computing professionals and rarely any business house that does not have a requirement.

Why learn from us?

Fast Track Program in Cloud Computing (FTP CC) is a tailormade job-oriented training program for Indian students. It was developed by a dedicated team of professionals and academicians over a period not less than 4 years of extensive and intensive research and practice. Institutes and online learning platforms that provide our training programs maintain very limited intakes to individual batches to ensure that Student: Faculty ratio is optimal for efficient delivery of classes.

  • Learning Type: Strictly LIVE Instructor-led and NOT Pre-Recorded Video Tutorials/WhatsApp Training. This ensures that students get to clear their doubts effectively and move forward to each chapter/session/module with clear understanding of the topics covered.
  • Instructors: The instructors at all NGJ Member Institutes are provided by NGJ and hence the quality of training shall be top-notch.
  • Cost: Determined by respective NGJ Member Institutes
  • Certification Test: The evaluation process of the certification test is transparent and efficiently conducted directly by the Board of Examination of NGJ and not by any of the NGJ Member Institutes.
