pointing to item on computer

Build on fundamental IT skills to launch your career in cloud services.


Companies are eager to hire professionals skilled in managing cloud-computing technologies. With a Cloud & System Administration certificate, you’ll learn how to oversee cloud services and other evolving technologies that reside in and outside an organization’s data center. With the know-how to install servers in virtual environments, you’ll have the in-demand technical competence employers need right now.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AN ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS) DEGREE?

If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. Any certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.

Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending Ensign College? Those earned credits can be transferred to your AS degree as electives.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.

Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.
