Ljubljana, 15.12.2013 – First group of 42 IT professionals achieves the new »c3e.eu – Certified Cloud Computing Engineer« status

During November and December a group of IT professionals in Slovenia achieved the new »c3e.eu –  Certified Cloud Computing Engineer« status. The »c3e.eu« – Certified Cloud Computing Engineer is a technical training and certification, which is addressing the widening knowledge gap. »c3e« training programme and certification is  supported by the activities of »KC Class« (the Slovenian cloud competence center – www.kc-class.eu ) and by Eurocloud (www.eurocloud.org) and was developed over a 4 year period, based on industry best practices and on 15 years of international experience in IT training for professionals.

Closing the knowledge gap - As cloud computing is increasingly being used inside Europe’s companies and organizations, the system engineers, administrators and developers are facing a need for knowledge&skill refresh or upgrade. Considering the speed of development of cloud computing technologies IT professionals are facing a knowledge gap, which is widening.  Do the IT professionals really need this new knowledge? Yes -when it comes to the »cloud« – let there be no mistake: the cloud is only as good as are the skills of system engineers and administrators, who are managing and operating it. As does the IT infrastructure, sitting in company’s datacenter, need attendance, so do servers and applications in the cloud. It is a fact, which cloud technologies reduce IT infrastructure management burden and make it more effective – however the issues did not disappear. Cloud technologies only enable the IT professional to have more time available to focus on user needs – which have too often been neglected.

 

Designed with the European perspective in mind – Several European Union guidelines and recommendations were used within »c3e« development process – for example, European e-Competence Framework or European qualifications framework (EQF) or the classification of skills/competences, qualifications and occupations (ESCO). At the same time »c3e« supports the objectives of fostering the ICT Profession in Europe, European Cloud partnership or e-skills for 21st century. The content scope is initially set for the needs of European system engineers, administrators – and later cloud application developers.
