The cloud has changed the way applications are hosted and tested. The CU Certified Cloud Testing - Foundation Level certification course focuses on the essential cloud characteristics and cloud specific tests that a tester needs to know.
The certification itself is independent of any specific cloud provider; however, hands-on exercises will be performed on several of the most widely known providers. Earners of the Certified Cloud Tester - Foundation Level certification will be able to perform various types of cloud specific tests and understand the differences between testing the cloud and testing apps in the cloud.
