This CIS Cloud Technology certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses. These core courses are designed to introduce students to virtualization and cloud technologies and provide students with the technical skills required to install, configure and manage all facets of a “cloud” infrastructure. The certificate is built for students who wish to acquire the skills necessary to work in the field of information technology and obtain industry certifications.
Since this CIS Cloud Technology certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses, it will enable CNM students who have completed the CIS AAS degree in a different concentration to complete the remaining technical courses in this area and earn this CIS certificate. Additionally, this cert is ideal for students coming to CNM with AA/AAS/BS degrees who wish to do the core technical course work for this area.
Many of the courses in this program are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs at other institutions. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
