Cloud is no longer an emerging technology. Now that businesses large and small are realizing the potential of cloud services, the need to hire individuals who can manage cloud workloads has sky-rocketed.

Google Cloud launched a new Associate Cloud Engineer certification, designed to address the growing demand for individuals with the foundational cloud skills necessary to deploy applications and maintain cloud projects on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

The Associate Cloud Engineer certification joins Professional Cloud Architect, which launched in 2016, and Data Engineer, which followed quickly thereafter. These certifications identify individuals with the skills and experience to leverage GCP to overcome complex business challenges. Since the program’s inception, Google Cloud Certified has experienced continual growth, especially this last year when the number of people sitting for Google professional certifications grew by 10x. Because cloud technology affects so many aspects of an organization, IT professionals need to know when and how to use cloud tools in a variety of scenarios, ranging from data analytics to scalability.

For example, it’s not enough to launch an application in the cloud. Associate Cloud Engineers also ensure that the application grows seamlessly, is properly monitored, and readily managed by authorized personnel.
