LOUISVILLE, CO – Aug. 18, 2020 – JumpCloud today announced a certification program for IT admins through the newly launched JumpCloud University.
JumpCloud, with over 100,000 organizations enrolled worldwide, designed JumpCloud University™ and certification to provide essential knowledge to its rapidly-growing base of IT admins, system administrators, MSPs, and DevOps engineers. Now JumpCloud admins can gain essential knowledge of the concepts and application of JumpCloud’s unified identity access and device management platform, and receive official certification demonstrating JumpCloud expertise.
JumpCloud University is a free education hub that provides IT administrators, MSPs, and DevOps engineers interactive and self-paced training at every skill level to better manage IT infrastructure through the JumpCloud platform. Admins select the content most relevant to their use case along one of three learning paths: for admins evaluating JumpCloud, for active admins of JumpCloud, and for MSPs who use JumpCloud to manage client organizations. With online courses, guided simulations, recorded webinars, and tutorial videos, JumpCloud University is the go-to resource for everything JumpCloud.
The JumpCloud Core Certification is available now; Advanced and Expert certifications will be available by the end of 2020. Certification assessments will be available through the JumpCloud University platform; the fee for the Core assessment will be waived for the remainder of 2020. While JumpCloud University courses will prepare admins for certification assessments, the courses are not required for the assessments, as many IT admins may have already developed extensive knowledge of the JumpCloud platform through direct experience or separate training.
There are 12 courses currently available, including:
- Build Your Own Directory™
- Configuring SSO
- Configuring RADIUS
- User Lockouts and Password Management
- Provisioning and De-Provisioning Users
- Leveraging User and System Groups
