New Horizons Bulgaria Offers In-Demand CloudMASTER® Courses from the National Technologists Association (NCTA) and Logical Operations
November 3, 2016 Sofia, Bulgaria

New Horizons Bulgaria, a leading provider of instructor-led technical training, announces the addition of the CloudMASTER® certification program courses – Cloud Technologies, Cloud Operations, and Cloud Architecture to their public training schedule.

According to Forbes, the rise in cloud computing has already created 3.9 million new jobs in the United States, and almost 400,000 positions in IT alone. As more and more companies are taking advantage of the benefits of moving to multiple cloud services, there is a significant need for IT professionals to gain the skills needed to successfully use and implement a wide range of cloud services, making vendor-focused training only part of the solution.

The unique CloudMASTER® certification program from the NCTA and Logical Operations provides IT professionals with a strong foundation in cloud technologies, and overall cloud architecture and management of cloud infrastructure, as well as a solid technical background in modern web services deployment and administration. The CloudMASTER® certification program is comprised of three courses and exams: Cloud Technologies, Cloud Operations, and Cloud Architecture. In these courses, students will learn concepts, principles, techniques, and practices needed to administer and secure a modern cloud-enabled business environment. Unlike other cloud computing training programs, this cloud computing training program is hands-on intensive while not being vendor-specific; IT professionals will learn to manage cloud computing technologies from many different vendors, enabling them to be more successful on the job.

Delivered on the Logical Operations CHOICE® digital learning platform, the NCTA cloud computing curriculum will also give students direct access to powerful digital learning tools before, during, and after class to help reinforce learning beyond the classroom. With CHOICE curriculum, students will gain an experience that incorporates a multitude of ways to learn with video learning, peer-to-peer learning through social communities, checklists for on-the-job support, assessments that check for understanding, and so much more.

Class dates and more information can be found on New Horizons Bulgaria’s website, and first class for NCTA Cloud Technologies is scheduled for 5 of December 2016.

“We are excited to partner with Logical Operations and help our customers quickly adopt the skills critical for their success,” said Nikolay Penev, CEO, New Horizons Bulgaria. “Organizations in our region are moving to the Cloud to increase adoption of new IT solutions, reduce costs, and be agile and scalable. They rely on our world-class training solutions to achieve these goals.”

“We are thrilled to partner with the National Cloud Technologists Association to develop vendor-neutral training curriculum for in-demand cloud computing skills, and we welcome a partnership with New Horizons Bulgaria to bring these courses to market,” said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. “Organizations are continuing to see the benefits of moving towards cloud services, and our partnership with the NCTA will help us provide IT professionals with the critical knowledge and skills needed to successfully use and implement cloud services, regardless of the vendor.”
