Skills acquisition where you learn it, Skills Validation where you prove it

Teams working in the Cloud need to validate skills quickly, and effectively. It’s also crucial that they understand all the different scenarios they might face when embracing Cloud—not just the clean examples.

Skillsoft and Learn on Demand Systems are partnering to expand the development of cloud skills, and to create an environment where learning, and trial and error, are supported and can be done without long-term costs to the organization. Challenge Labs are innovative online scored labs where you can sharpen skills in a safe, smart environment and include over 1,000 cloud labs that covers topics including: AWS, Azure, Hybrid, and Multi-Cloud.
